SCDOT Public Information Meeting April 30 for the Proposed Safety Improvements at the Intersection of SC 9 (Hwy 9 W) and SC 410 (Green Sea Road) in Horry County


Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 from 5-7 PM

at Green Sea Floyds Elementary School

5000 Tulip Grove Rd, Green Sea SC, 29545



The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) has scheduled a public information meeting, Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Green Sea Floyds Elementary School, 5000 Tulip Grove Rd, Green Sea SC, 29545.  The meeting will have a drop in format with displays for viewing, informational handouts, and comment forms.


The purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity to review and discuss individually with representatives from SCDOT the proposed safety improvements at the intersection of SC 9 (Hwy 9 W) and SC 410 (Green Sea Rd). Another purpose of the meeting is to gather information from the public or any interested organization on historic or cultural resources in the area.


The purpose of this project is to improve the safety of this corridor to help reduce the frequency and severity of crashes occurring at this location. This location was selected for improvement through the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). The HSIP uses a data-driven strategic approach to identify locations throughout the state with high crash rates or patterns and implements safety enhancements through infrastructure-related improvements. The HSIP project selection requires an engineering study that includes an analysis of the crash data, an assessment of field conditions, and an evaluation of the effectiveness of all potential countermeasures to ensure maximum safety benefit is obtained for the amount of funds invested.


Additional information concerning the project may be obtained by contacting SCDOT Project Manager Brett McCutchan at 803.737.1564.  Project information will also be available on the project website: or on the SCDOT website:; Public Involvement - Current Projects. Persons with disabilities who may require special accommodations should contact Betty Gray at 803.737.1395.

Portion of Neely Wingard Road in Lexington County Closed for Repairs

​SCDOT Lexington Maintenance has closed a portion of Neely Wingard Road between US 178 and Pond Branch Road in Gilbert due to high water elevation under the bridge that crosses Bouknight Pond. High water elevation has been caused due to the recent rains and overnight beaver activity under the bridge. As a result, immediate repairs are required to the roadway. A detour route has been installed guiding motorists to use Calks Ferry Road and Pond Branch Road. SCDOT is anticipating Neely Wingard Road will be reopened by Friday, April 12. SCDOT is aware of the inconvenience this will cause to the local traffic and appreciates the traveling public's patience while repairs are underway.
