HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Crews worked to install an entrance on the west side of SC-707 between Leonard and Bay Road on Friday for the Carolina Bays Extension Project.

The project, which was approved in May 2013, will bring a multi-lane freeway facility with a grass median, a bridge over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, and interchanges at SC-544 and SC-707. Construction is expected to be completed in Spring 2017, and the total coast of the project is estimated at $225 million to $237 million.

Up until this point, crews have cleared out trees and relocated utilities. Now the project is transitioning into phases 2 and 3, with the focus shifting to build the bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway.

While crews work on that area, a section of Enterprise Road will shut down for a few months, forcing locals to detour a few miles in each direction.
