Extending the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is about to get a little longer.

According to information on the city of Myrtle Beach’s Facebook page, work is underway to extend the oceanfront boardwalk from 15th Avenue North to 16th Avenue North.

This extension is coinciding with the construction of the new Hilton Grand 16 oceanfront hotel, according to the city. It will be 26 stories tall and house 330 units.

When finished, the boardwalk will stretch from First Avenue South to 16th Avenue North. It initially opened in 2010 at a cost of nearly $6.5 million and roughly 800,000 feet of lumber, according to information from VisitMyrtleBeach.com.
