SeeClickFix: Dangerous Intersection in Carolina Forest

Myrtle Beach, SC - By Trey Paul - bio | email

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – If you've ever made a left into the direction of the Kroger shopping center while turning onto Carolina Forest Boulevard off of US-501, you may have felt uneasy.

"When you're trying to make that turn you're inching out trying to see if there's any cars coming and the bushes totally get in the way," said Emily Johnston.

Earlier this week, there were illegal signs posted all along that same median. A viewer wrote to SeeClickFix asking for help.

"You want to see what the sign says and you're trying to quickly read it when your attention is on anything but the road, you're asking yourself to get in trouble," Johnston said.

But after we made a call to the Horry County Department Planning, the next day they were removed by workers with code enforcement.

"I actually noticed that there weren't any signs there anymore because I'm focusing more on traffic and not what all those signs on the road are saying," Johnston commented.

Stephanie Jakub added, "If the trees weren't in the median it would be much easier to turn."

The director of the Horry County Department of Public Works says they might be close to being too high and will check things out.

"If they weren't there you'd be able to see a lot better if there's cars coming and if your safe to go or not," Johnston said.
