Neighborhood Walmart Market arrives, casts concern over traffic safety

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The first Neighborhood Walmart Market, in Horry County, is set to open Wednesday. It is described as a grocery store version and is smaller than a full-size Walmart.

Traffic concerns have been a hot topic surrounding the arrival of the Market, mainly due to its location.

The intersection of Highway 544 and Kings Highway is heavily congested. Crosswalk signs have been placed on the south side, yet there is no designated crosswalk.

Others say the concern should be focused on the Lakewood Campground intersection.
