The sign on Glenns Bay Road that reads “road widening project” in Surfside Beach is about 10 years old and starting to fade. I suggest they refurbish this sign so it will last another 10 years.
The road widening on S.C. 707 from Socastee to Murrells Inlet is getting old also. I counted 23 housing subdivisions that have direct access onto this road, including a large high school and a separate grade school complex. Also three major feeder roads: Holmestown, Enterprise, and TPC Boulevard that have another six large housing complexes. This two lane road is a nightmare, yet all we read and hear is how we need Interstate 73 for tourists.
What about the taxpayers that live here year-round? Sen. Cleary, a comment? Are we so passive that we just accept their indifference?
