New roads to be completed soon

Getting here and getting around town will be even easier!

You could be driving on two brand new roads by Labor Day. A couple of Grand Strand projects are nearing completion and scheduled to open at about the same time in late summer.

DOT program manager, Mike Barbee says crews are busy pouring concrete on the North Myrtle Beach Main Street Connector. The road will connect Main Street in North Myrtle Beach with Highways 31 and 90.

Barbee says the road is scheduled to be completed and open to traffic in early to mid-August. Mid-August is about the same time that the new Fantasy Harbour Bridge is scheduled to open. Construction of the Fantasy Harbour Bridge started almost two years ago, in July 2007. The Fantasy Harbour Bridge is just below the Highway 501/Highway 17 Bypass intersection near the Myrtle Beach International JetPort. It will provide easy access to Fantasy Harbor and to the new FreeStyle Music & Amusement Park.
