Since the bridge that connects George Bishop to Harrelson Boulevard and Bypass 17, traffic has increased on the parkway.

One resident felt that the intersection had become too dangerous and contacted the South Carolina Department of Transportation earlier this year. SCDOT responded to the complaint and conducted a study. The study revealed that the intersection was indeed dangerous and had higher than normal accidents, 21 in almost four years. 

Hop on over to to read their full write-up, including the cost of the new light. We all know that Horry County is overrun with dangerous or bad intersections, if you know of one drop a note to the SCDOT by visiting their website
