Plans to extend International Drive no longer in the long stretch

CAROLINA FOREST, SC (WMBF) - The extension of International Drive is in the works.

Plans to extend the popular Carolina Forest road have been discussed by county leaders, along with other plans to transform the road into a multi-modal route for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The $15.5 million road project will include road improvements, as well as sidewalks. The sidewalks will give residents in the Farm access to both the Towne Center and the schools, by foot, which people who work in the area say is incredibly needed because the traffic has gotten hectic.

Check back soon for the full report.
