CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Travel at the Highway 17 Bypass at US 707 and Farrow Parkway will be restricted overnight Wednesday as crews set the steel girders for the southbound bridge over the bypass.

According to a news release from the Horry County government, the work of setting the girders for the southbound bridge will be completed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. During this time, motorists will be able to travel north and south on the US 17 Bypass, however, no left turns will be allowed from the bypass where it intersects US 707 and Farrow Parkway.

Motorists traveling on SC 707 and Farrow Parkway will not be allowed to travel through the intersection or make left turns, the release states. Only right turns off SC 707 and Farrow Parkway onto the Highway 17 Bypass will be allowed.

"The recommended access for south bound US 17 Bypass and SC 707 wanting to go east on Farrow Parkway would be to use the US 17/SC 544 Interchange," the release states. "The recommended access for north bound US 17 and Farrow Parkway wanting to go west on SC 707 would be to use the Fantasy Harbour/US 17 Interchange. The alternative detours/routes are placed on signage throughout the vicinity of the project."

Similar restrictions will be in place when the steel girders are set on the northbound bridge; that construction time will be announced by the county at a later date.
