MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The City of Myrtle Beach will begin improvements on Howard Avenue, on January 11 and will affect both residents and business owners in The Market Common area.

Plans have been made for several traffic and pedestrian control changes for Howard Avenue.

Listed below are those changes.

1. Installation of a new mid-block pedestrian crosswalk on Howard Avenue, between Hackler Street and Iris Street. This requires daytime lane closures on Howard Avenue in both directions. On-street parking will not be allowed during these lane closures. Here are the dates and times of those closures.

a.) 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday, January 11 – Southbound lanes of Howard Avenue will be closed.


b.) 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, January 12 – both Northbound and Southbound lanes of Howard Avenue will be closed.


c.) 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 13 –Northbound lane of Howard Avenue closed

2. The speed limit on Howard Avenue, between Farrow Parkway and Nevers Street, drops from its current limit of 30 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour, effective Thursday, January 21.

3. A new four-way stop at the intersection of Howard Avenue and Hackler Street becomes effective at 12:00 p.m., Thursday, January 21. The four-way stop’s purpose is traffic control and the protocol to make such a change requires several weeks to implement. Please look for advance signage about this change.
