Millions Included In Funding For Highway Expansion

The additional funds will be designated for the northern extension of Carolina Bays Parkway, also known as Highway 31.

Members of congress will be considering a road project in Horry County that includes millions of dollars.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham’s office announced $22 million for an “interchange expansion” has been included in a bill that funds many different projects across South Carolina.

The additional funds will be designated for the northern extension of Carolina Bays Parkway, also known as Highway 31.

The project is expected to expand Highway 31 from Highway 9 to the North Carolina state line.

Congress is expected to debate and vote on the bill this week.
