Bay Road Update

The Bay Road drainage and safety improvements are moving steadily towards completion.  The county’s contractor will be on the road over the next couple of weeks to complete the grass shoulder widening, asphalt milling, and final road resurfacing work.  Expect intermittent single lane closures during this time.

This project is improving safety along the road by widening the shoulder and by creating much flatter side slopes along the roadside ditch.  In addition, approximately 1,200 linear feet of guard rail will be installed at the edge of the new shoulder as shown on the attached map.

We anticipate that all paving work will wrap-up by the end of March, and the guard rail will be completely installed approximately one to two weeks after paving is complete, weather permitting.

As we finish the remainder of the project, we ask drivers in the area to slow down, pay attention to traffic control devices, and look out for crews working along the roadway. Stay tuned to our website at and our social media feeds for updates!

Bay Road Construction Update

Tuesday, November 12, 2019, through Friday, November 15, 2019, Bay Road will be closed between Blue Heron Boulevard (Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht) and Freewoods Road from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM for drainage work. Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht residents will need to access their neighborhood from an alternate route (other than directly from Hwy 707).

The project will improve drainage infrastructure in the area. The completion date on the project is to be determined. Residents in the area can expect some road closures throughout the duration of the project and are encouraged to stay tuned to local broadcasts or visit for the latest updates on the project.
