MILLING & RESURFACING OF HIGHWAY 179 (BEACH DRIVE)
The Town of Calabash has been notified by NCDOT that the milling and resurfacing of Highway 179 (Beach Drive) will start this week. This is a six to eight week project that will extend from the North Carolina/South Carolina State Line to the intersection with Old Georgetown Road. NCDOT has explained to us that they could not start the project until after mid-March.
We (The Town) have expressed our concern about the amount of traffic (especially around the Easter Holiday) and NCDOT and the paving contractor have agreed to halt paving from Saturday, April 8th until Tuesday, April 18th. NCDOT is trying to work this around the Easter Holiday and finish before the summer season begins in June.
As we have more information, we will forward it to you.
