NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The North Myrtle Beach road paving project, budgeted at just under $1 million, was delayed by recent storms and has been scheduled to begin Thursday. The new start date does hinge on whether the paving contractor can complete other work also delayed by the storms, reveals Public Information Officer Pat Dowling.
If the contractor is unable to complete the other jobs, the start date for North Myrtle Beach could be pushed into early next week.
The first roads to be paved will be 60th Avenue North, 58th Avenue North, 57th Avenue North, 54th Avenue North, and Nixon Street.
The contractor will then pave 34th Avenue North and Ameron Court. Following completion of that work, the contractor will pave 6th Avenue South, Havens Drive, 14th Avenue South, and Possum Trot Road.
Horry County Transportation Committee will cover $440,000 of the total $820,000 project, and the remaining $380,000 will be paid by the City of North Myrtle Beach.
The paving project is part of the city’s annual roads maintenance program.
