Motorists are warned to be aware of flagging that will occur at about 8 p.m. Wednesday along S.C. 707.

The flagging will occur between McDowell Shortcut Road and Salem Road. The flagging will help in the removal of some vegetation debris from the side of the road due to the clearing related to the road widening project. Flagging should only last a few hours and through traffic will be maintained, according to a press release from Horry County.

The $105 million widening of S.C. 707 from a two-lane shoulder section to a five-lane curb and gutter road will stretch a little more than 9 miles, from just south of Enterprise Road to the Horry/Georgetown county line. The project, which is set to be complete by the spring of 2017, should alleviate the traffic jams that occur from the 28,000 to 30,000 daily vehicles along that stretch.
