Paving busy Myrtle Beach street finally winding up

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Despite delays because of last winter's bad weather, repaving of one of the busiest streets in Myrtle Beach is winding up.

Crews are repaving all five lanes of Kings Highway for more than 10 blocks through the center of town. Officials had hoped the work could be finished last month before the start of the busy summer tourist season.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that (http://bit.ly/U5Yk9H ) the final paving is underway this week and should be finished by Saturday.

The work also includes new curbs, gutters, sidewalks and crosswalks at the intersections that don't have traffic lights. Myrtle Beach is the heart of the state's $18 billion tourism industry.
