More than 200 roads are still closed in Horry County as of Tuesday morning due to flooding impacts, according to online maps.
The county’s most popular routes that are closed include portions of S.C. 905, S.C. 19 and Pee Dee Highway. U.S. 701 is closed in Conway from Mill Pond Road to Chicora Boulevard. A portion of S.C. 9 is closed between S.C. 905 and S.C. 57.
As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, there were 194 county roads closed, according to county map showing the latest road information. There were about 40 state roads closed Wednesday morning, according to the South Carolina Department of Transportation map.
S.C. 22 and S.C. 90 remains open Wednesday.
SCDOT will begin removing the barriers that line 501 Monday, and drivers are asked to avoid the area. The traffic around those barriers has created major backups since being put in place ahead of flooding from the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. But the traffic issues will not be fixed while barrier removal is beginning.
More than a dozen roads are closed in the Socastee area due to flooding. Those roads are around neighborhoods. Socastee Boulevard remains open, but a portion of Enterprise Road is closed.
