MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WMBF) – Phase Two of repairs on the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk started on Wednesday.

According to information from Georgetown County, the wooden planks and rails along the Marshwalk were replaced from the northern-most part of the structure to the area between the Dead Dog Saloon and the Claw House restaurant during the first phase.

Phase Two will pick up where the last phase left off, repairing the remainder of the Marshwalk as well as the Veterans Pier to the south.

Dead Dog Saloon owner Mike Campbell said he is happy with the repairs that have been completed so far.

“The repairs look great,” Campbell said. “The county’s done a great job. It’s been a long time. It really needed it. It’s much safer than it’s been. The customers love it. Everyone’s talking about it.”

He was very outspoken before the project about the need for repairs.

“There was a lot of tripping hazards,” he said. “There was a lot of screws that were loose.”

As with phase one, work will be completed in small sections, allowing the Marshwalk to remain open, county officials said.

Operations for restaurants along the Marshwalk will not be impacted, according to a release.
