Carolina Forest Boulevard Widening Project: Night Construction Date Change

 
 
Due to the anticipated inclement weather, Carolina Forest Boulevard construction has been canceled for the week of July 6-9, 2021.
 
Construction on the Carolina Forest Boulevard and River Oaks intersection has been rescheduled, weather depending, for Sunday, July 11, 2021, and ending the morning of Friday, July 16, 2021, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily. Motorists should plan an alternate route, if possible, as there will be delays, flagging operations, lane shifts, and detours as necessary to install the remaining traffic signal components, final asphalt surfacing, concrete island, and pavement markings. Extra caution is urged as the construction area will be very congested with workers and equipment during this timeframe; portable light plants will be strategically placed to aid the visibility of motorists as they navigate the work zone. Motorists are reminded to obey all traffic control devices and use extra patience.

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 horrycounty.org and our social media feeds for updates!
