Business owners not happy following Kings Highway project

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Nearly one full year has passed since the Kings Highway Project was completed. 


The city spent $1.7 million and took a month longer than expected to widen sidewalks, install new driveway connections, add new curbs and gutters, crosswalks, lighting, landscaping the medians, and resurfacing the pavement. 


The upgrades are located from 8th Avenue North to 3rd Avenue South on Kings Highway. 


Some of the funding came from the state. 


Sounds wonderful? Only one problem, most business owners up and down that stretch of road are not happy with the changes at all.


Find out why they aren't happy and why some wish instead of the city planting flowers and trees, the focus would be on crime.
