Construction workers have laid the asphalt on Ocean Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach at Main Street just in time for the Divas Half Marathon and 5K on Sunday.

Work began last winter to install an 84-inch pipe that will connect to an ocean outfall structure being constructed underground within the horseshoe and travel about 1,200 feet offshore where stormwater collected from the stormwater basin will be released, a $9.5 million project.

The intersection of Main Street and Ocean Boulevard closed for construction in early February.

“The divas will be running on pavement,” city spokesman Pat Dowling said.

The Divas Half Marathon and 5K takes place Sunday and the half marathon route starts and ends on Ocean Boulevard near Main Street. About 5,000 runners participated in the event last year.
