Update: Myrtle Beach road construction

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach City Spokesperson Mark Kruea says drivers should be aware of the following lane and road closures for the next few weeks, as construction projects continue this spring.

· Look for lane closures on Kings Highway, between Eighth Avenue North and Third Avenue South

The work includes new sidewalks, curb-and-gutter, landscaped medians, lighting, crosswalks and new pavement. The project is scheduled for completion in late May.

· Drivers can expect nighttime lane closures at the intersection of Third Avenue South and Broadway Street (Highway 15) from Monday, March 31, through Thursday, April 3. The closures will last from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The intersection will remain open.

· SCDOT will close the intersection of Pine Island Road and Broadway Street (Highway 15) on Monday, April 7, to install a drainage pipe across Highway 15. The work will begin at 6:00 a.m. and probably last until nightfall. Detours will be posted on both roads.

This is in preparation for signalization of the intersection.

· Work continues on US 17 at Chestnut Road in the Restaurant Row area to install a sewer force main.

Kruea says most of the work is occurring at night, with southbound traffic reduced to one lane. A 30 mile-per-hour speed limit is in place in the construction zone.
