Horry County to try to claim surplus road money for S.C. 31 extension to North Carolina

via The Sun News:

S.C. 31 could be extended to the North Carolina line if Horry County leaders can use proposed surplus funds from the current extension project on the south end of the county. Horry County leaders are hoping to convince State Infrastructure Bank officials to let them use a planned $50 million savings from the southern extension of S.C. 31 on a proposed project to extend the road to the North Carolina state line. A North Carolina transportation official said that move just may bump up North Carolina’s plans to connect that highway to U.S. 17 near Shallotte, N.C., creating a highway connection from Georgetown County to the middle of Brunswick County, N.C.
