Highway 15 Closed at Pine Island


Highway 15 will be CLOSED at the Pine Island intersection on April 9th. As most residents and locals know, Highway 15 has been under construction for some time. The end result will be the addition of a traffic light and turning lanes to at Pine Island. The original road closure was planned for April 7th; however, due to weather concerns that work has been postponed until this Wednesday, April 9th.

If you are to be affected by the road closure, you may want to consider one of the following alternatives.

1.) 17th Avenue & Pridgen Road: As you leave the complex, take a right turn and an immediate left on 17th Avenue South. Approximately .4 mile down, take a left onto Pridgen Road. Stay on Pridgen and you will connect back to Highway 15 at Town Square Apartments.

2.) Harrelson Boulevard & Bob Grissom Parkway: Take a right onto Highway 15 as you leave the complex and stay straight until the road ends at Harrelson Boulevard. Turn right and stay straight until the FIRST traffic light. Make a right hand turn onto Grissom Parkway and stay straight. Once you reach the intersection at Highway 501, turn right and proceed into town. You will pass by 3rd Avenue South, Broadway Street, and eventually Highway 17 Business.

A Word On Towing – Update Your Sticker !!

With the Return of Towing on the complex, you may want to Check Your Parking Sticker. At least TWO vehicles, each belonging to LONG TIME OWNERS, have been towed recently due to their sticker being faded. You would think that the tow company would have common sense and take the time to look or would recognize/remember the vehicles; however, DO NOT take a chance. Once your car has been towed from the property, YOU are responsible for the towing charge as well as any damage that your vehicle may suffer.

Take the time TODAY to inspect the Pinegrove Parking sticker on your vehicle(s). If it is the least bit faded, or has started to peel away, contact Tim Chestnut IMMEDIATELY for a replacement.

Myrtle Beach Proposes Closing Ocean Boulevard

At night. They are wanting to close a section of Ocean Boulevard EACH NIGHT to allow foot traffic only. Here is what is being discussed, courtesy of The Sun News:

If all goes as Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes hopes, a portion of Ocean Boulevard downtown would be shut down from Easter to Labor Day to allow only pedestrian traffic at night as soon as this year.

The mayor said Wednesday allowing room for more pedestrians on the section of Ocean Boulevard from Seventh Avenue North to Mr. Joe White from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. would encourage those people to go into the shops instead of drive past them.

“If you’re in your car and riding, you’re not spending,” he said. “Think about Broadway at the Beach. They park there and walk. They park there and spend money. So why would they not spend money on the Boulevard?”

The Downtown Redevelopment Corp. board members said Wednesday during their annual retreat that they agreed with the concept and would look into the logistics before sending a recommendation to City Council.

Rhodes said the idea stems from what is done in the French Quarter in New Orleans, where Bourbon Street and surrounding roads are open during the day to allow deliveries to restaurants and shops, but closed at night to allow pedestrians to easily walk around.

“The sidewalks aren’t very wide [in downtown Myrtle Beach] and it gets crowded,” Rhodes said.

Many DRC members and other downtown stakeholders said most of the logistics would have to be figured out before the board makes any suggestion to City Council.

“I think it’s a good idea, but it’s certainly going to take a whole lot of research and a lot of work,” police Chief Warren Gall said. “It would increase foot traffic and business on that street.”

City manager Tom Leath said if the city decides to pursue the idea, the Myrtle Beach Planning Commission and then the City Council would have to approve it.

“If everybody says, ‘Yes, this is a great idea,’ it could be in place by this season,” he said. “But I think [the DRC] is going to have a fair amount of discussion about it. And the Planning Commission would likely have a fair amount of discussion. And City Council probably would as well.”

DRC executive director David Sebok said he wasn’t sure that shutting down three blocks of the Boulevard was something that should happen every night, but possibly on weekends.

Members also noted that closing a portion of the Boulevard would increase traffic on nearby streets. Gall noted that for years people have come to Myrtle Beach to cruise the Boulevard.

“They bring cars [and] drive the Boulevard,” he said. “People want to see the cars. The people in the cars want to see the people walking. But nobody’s going into the shops.”

Eli Jones with DDC Engineers, Inc., said for some people, the cars on the Boulevard are part of the appeal.

“One of the reasons people come down here is to see the nice rides,” Jones said. “From an engineering and police standpoint, having a thoroughfare on Chester Street or Withers would be a very beneficial thing to try to pursue.”

But Craig Atkins, manager at Ripley’s Entertainment, said “We’ll have increased traffic on nearby streets, but instead of driving, they’ll start walking.”

Oceanfront Merchants Association President Chris Walker said he was open to trying the mayor’s idea. Walker owns two businesses on the stretch of Ocean Boulevard that would be closed at night.

“I know it might be surprising but I like the idea of trying to close the Boulevard at night,” he said. “And I like it because if it doesn’t work you can flip it back around.”

All of the plans are in the early stages and more information will be released as it becomes available.
