April 2016 News: Ride 3's impact on tourism
Keep your eyes on pending allocation of RIDE 3 tax dollars to area road improvements. On the recommended list under consideration is the completion of SC 31 to the North Carolina line. In a recent development, the Connecting The Carolinas coalition made an unprecedented move to bring both Carolinas together, in an effort to finish the Interstate-like road on both sides of the border.
What would that mean? More tourism and tax revenue and a safer and more convenient north/south evacuation route. In terms of business development, it would mean a commerce corridor to further the growing connection between Horry and Brunswick Counties, as well as better proximity and access to Wilmington, NC’s port for potential industries looking to locate in northern Horry County.
