CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – The Conway Riverwalk will be seeing new life this year.

The historic warehouse dates back to around the 1800s, but because of the poor condition caused by flooding events, it is being demolished.

The new construction will be built up to current flood standards, and the city hopes to bring several new dining options along the Waccamaw River.

Construction is expected to take several months to complete.

People are being told to not move or go around the barricades at the Riverwalk.
