MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - The project to install more than 800 surveillance cameras in Myrtle Beach by the end of the year has been delayed due to rainy weather and some adjustments.
Lt. Joey Crosby said adjustments included correcting some zoom imaging and some angles. City officials hope the project will be completed by the end of January.
Crosby says the $2.1 million project is nearing the end of phase three and still at the beginnings of phase four, which involves about 248 cameras being installed to watch over all major intersections throughout Myrtle Beach's city limits.
Crosby said data from the cameras won't be used for issuing speeding tickets but for watching traffic, review car crash footage and any crimes.
