CAROLINA FOREST AREA, SC (WBTW) – The Carolina Forest Boulevard widening project will begin on June 17, according to Kelly Moore, with Horry County.

The contractor for the project is Southern Asphalt.

Earlier in May, News13 reported that people who live in the Carolina Forest area spoke with Horry County Planning and Zoning’s director, David Schwerd, and the Ride III project manager about the widening project.

“It’s tough getting out in the morning with the school traffic and whatnot,” said Michael Lobes, who lives in Carolina Forest. “The widening of Carolina Forest Boulevard is long overdue.”

Contractors have 700 days to complete the project.

The Carolina Forest Boulevard widening project alone totals more than $54 million.
