Lakeshore Drive to open today

Posted on: 06.8.2018 at 11:11 a.m.

Lakeshore Drive at Lake Waccamaw should open for traffic again today (Friday).
Town Manager Harry Foley said Department of Transportation officials will move barricades to the waterfront side of the road until guardrails can be installed.

The road was closed earlier this year at The Anchorage due to a washout caused by groundwater. Although the road surface itself was intact, the bed was dangerously undercut and eroded.

The project saw extensive delays when the state contractor encountered material supply problems. Lakeshore is a state-maintained roadway.
