The Carolina Forest Boulevard widening project began in June 2019. In theory,it will take 700 days for Southern Asphalt to complete this project, which would be a completion date of May 2021. The Carolina Forest Boulevard contract calls for expanding the two-lane portion of the boulevard to four lanes from Gateway Drive to River Oaks Drive and building a multi-purpose path beside the road, passing directly in front of our community. David Schwerd is the Horry County Director of Planning and Zoning. He has asked us all to be patient a this multi-million dollars project progresses.
“There’s a lot of construction that can occur during the day that will not require lane closures and intersection restrictions,” Schwerd said. “As much as can be done during the day will be done during the day.”
