Right turn only

Safety improvements at one of Horry County’s more dangerous crossroads, SC 410 at SC 9, were in the later stages on Friday, with traffic on the two-lane SC 410 no longer able to go straight across the divided four-lane highway. Palmetto Paving crews changed the pavement and painting creating a “Michigan Turn” that requires all traffic on SC 410 to turn right, then to make a U-turn from a new far-left lane if the need is to travel the opposite direction. Barrels will remain until concrete medians are put in place to prevent motorists from going straight across. That work is expected next week. (Deuce Niven, TLT)
