Shoulder closures planned for Glenns Bay Road widening project this week


Several shoulder closures are planned this week for work on the Glenns Bay Road widening project.

Now through Friday, there will be a shoulder closure on U.S. 17 Bypass north and south bound in the median areas and the right shoulders at different times of the day to mow grass, according to a press release sent by Horry County. This work is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. between St. James Road and Sutter Drive.

Also, today through Friday, there will be a shoulder closure on Holmestown Roadd, east and west bound on the right shoulder, to mow grass. The work is planned between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. between U.S. 17 Bypass and Blue Jay Drive.

The $46.3 million project calls for a bridge to be built over Glenns Bay Road. It also includes the widening of Glenns Bay to Spanish Oak Drive to a five-lane highway. From Spanish Oak, the road will narrow to four lanes to the entrance of Surfside Beach Club before turning to three lanes as it reaches U.S. 17 Business.
