Hurricane Florence has left the area, but conditions including flooding and downed trees are closing some roads.
As of about 7:30 a.m. Friday, officials recorded about 100 road closures in Horry County.
Here is the latest on road closures for some on the main highways as of about 8 a.m. Friday, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) website, Horry County website and other governmental sources (Some city/town locations are approximate):
▪ U.S. 501 at the intersection of S.C. 22
▪ U.S. 501 - through Conway has been reduced to two lanes through the business portion in downtown Conway.
▪ U.S. 501 Bypass - closed from Church Street to E. Cox Ferry Road
▪ SC 9 between SC 905 and S-57
▪ SC 66 at Madison, and SC 9 Bypass and Oak Dale Road
▪ SC 701 North from Mill Pond Road to Chicora Blvd, from Hwy 65 to Long Road, and from Sherwood Drive to Cultra Road
▪ SC 905 between Main St. and East Country Club Drive, McNeil Chapel and W. Beargrass Road, and Old Buck Creek Road and Buck Creek Drive
▪ SC 31 - between SC 90 and SC 905
In addition to the temporary flood barrier projects on U.S. 501 and U.S. 378, the state was looking at solutions to other potential problem areas on U.S. 701 at the convergence of the Little Pee Dee and Great Pee Dee rivers, U.S. 17 at the bridge in downtown Georgetown, and several locations on Interstate 95, which is closed in a few areas in the Carolinas.
Many secondary and rural roads are also closed due to storm impacts, and road conditions are changing rapidly. We recommend checking real time maps, such as the Horry County website, City of Conway (z, or the SCDOT website, before traveling.
