Commuters on Carolina Forest Boulevard can expect delays beginning Monday and for the next three weeks for resurfacing work.

Resurfacing work will begin Monday evening on Carolina Forest Boulevard, from the fire station/Covington Lakes entrance to River Oaks Drive, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., according to a press release from Horry County. The time slot is “to reduce the traffic impacts to the area,” which is already a high-traffic area.

Work will be done in the evenings, excluding Friday and Saturday, and motorists can expect some delays in nighttime traffic due to single-lane closures.

Last year, county planners bumped up the anticipated expansion of Carolina Forest Boulevard because residents in the growing area have been concerned about the traffic. So the county installed turn lanes at Southgate, Avalon and at the Carolina Forest Library to ease traffic on Carolina Forest Boulevard until this resurfacing work.
