A beautification project inside the loop of the U.S. 17 northbound off ramp from S.C. 22 is scheduled to be completed this week. Plans include the planting of crape myrtles and Sabal palmettos trees, a lighted LED fountain, mulched beds and an improved irrigation system. The project, which cost $83,000, began in March. Guyton Realty Group has adopted the area for litter pickup.

The improvements come on the heels of a county effort to install a 28-foot-wide, two-lane, $1.6 million concrete boat landing near S.C. 22 and U.S. 17. Those plans call for a picnic pavilion to be added to newly installed playground equipment near the boat landing.
