AYNOR, SC (WMBF) - Driving through Horry County, you may hit a bumpy ride. Weather, without a doubt, plays an impact on our road conditions. The county says they're working to alleviate the issues. 

Kenny Lewis lives in Aynor and says after the storm on Monday, there was a huge ditch in his road. He's not the only Aynor resident to run into trouble on Cooper-Collins Road, but damage like this is inevitable after this weeks' weather.

"Everything was flooded, I mean water was just, it was like a lake through here," Lewis said.

With about 800 miles of dirt roads maintained by the county, it's an issue public works deals with, often. Earlier this week, 20 different dirt roads were impacted by the rain, a safety concern for drivers and a priority for the public works department, which is why the county says it patched up all 20 roads, the next day.

"They came right out the next morning, looked at it, closed the road off, and then that afternoon they were out here fixing it," Lewis said.

If you have an issue with roads in your area you can call the Horry County road and drainage hotline at 381-8000. They'll come out, assess the situation and let you know how fast it can be fixed.
