GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A proposed roundabout could replace an oak tree in Georgetown County.

The tree is located on Waverly Road and Petigru Drive, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting Friday where the public will have the opportunity to provide written comments in favor or against the roundabout.

The meeting is being held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Waccamaw High School cafeteria, 2412 Kings River Road, Pawleys Island.

The proposed project will realign the intersection to meet current design requirements, eliminate crossing conflicts and improve safety.
