MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The City of Myrtle Beach installed barricades on Ocean Boulevard in effort to stem recent violence by keeping pedestrians on the sidewalk and out of the street.

According to a Myrtle Beach City Government Facebook post, keeping pedestrians safe is the goal of installing barricades. A fight that spilled into the street precipitated a shooting last weekend.

The post continued, saying an ordinance will be on City Council’s agenda next week to extend the juvenile curfew, currently in place from 1 to 6 a.m.

Santee Cooper will install 200 LED lights on some streets for better visibility and officials will discuss state assistance with Governor Henry McMaster during his visit Thursday.
