Back gate construction in Myrtle Beach area delayed

troot@thesunnews.comJanuary 29, 2014 

The construction work scheduled for Wednesday night at the back gate on U.S. 17 Bypass has been postponed, said Lisa Bourcier, Horry County spokeswoman.

Steel girders were scheduled to be put in place, but the work for Wednesday was postponed. That work is also scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. Thursday and continue until 6 a.m. Friday, and Bourcier said crews will monitor weather conditions and determine if that work can proceed.

During the construction, motorists will be able to travel north and south bound on U.S. 17 Bypass, but not be allowed to make left turns from U.S. 17 Bypass at the intersection of S.C. 707 and Farrow Parkway. Motorists traveling on S.C. 707 and Farrow Parkway when approaching the intersection will not be allowed to travel through the intersection or make left turns. Only right turns will be allowed off of S.C. 707 and Farrow Parkway onto U.S. 17 Bypass.

The recommended access for south bound U.S. 17 Bypass and S.C. 707 wanting to go east on Farrow Parkway would be to use the U.S. 17/S.C. 544 Interchange. The recommended access for north bound U.S. 17 and Farrow Parkway wanting to go west on S.C. 707 would be to use the Fantasy Harbour/U.S. 17 Interchange. The alternative detours/routes are placed on signage throughout the vicinity of the project.
