There will be minor flagging Thursday night along S.C. 707 between Salem Road and Blackmoor Drive in the Burgess community.

The flagging, which will begin at 8 p.m. and last for a few hours, is for a seeding project. Through traffic will be maintained.

The seeding project is part of a $105 million widening of S.C. 707 project. It will take S.C. 707 from a two-lane shoulder section to a five-lane curb and gutter road and 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.

The project is being funded completely by the 2006 Riding on a Penny referendum.
