HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - The thousands of residents who live off Palmetto Pointe Boulevard will soon have another way in and out of the community.

At Tuesday’s Horry County Council meeting, county leaders were given an update on the status of a number of road projects funded through the RIDE program, the Palmetto Pointe Boulevard extension being one of them.
