Environmental Impact Statement: Horry & Georgetown Counties, SC

AGENCY: Fedeal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of intent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an 
environmental impact statement will be prepared for a proposed highway 
facility from near the North Carolina state line in Horry County to 
near the City of Georgetown in Georgetown County, South Carolina.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Kenneth R. Myers, Planning & Environmental Engineer, Federal Highway 
Administration, 1835 Assembly Street, suite 758, Strom Thurmond Federal 
Building, Columbia, SC 29201, telephone: (803) 253-3881. Contacts at 
the State and local level, respectively are: Mr. Tommy Elrod, South 
Carolina Department of Transportation, P.O. Box 191, Columbia, SC, 
telephone (803) 737-1564; Dr. Peter B. Barr, Coastal Caroline 
University, College Road KH 204, P.O. Box 1954, Conway, SC, telephone 
(803) 349-2640.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the South 
Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and the Horry County 
Higher Education Commission (the Commission), will prepare an 
environmental impact statement on the proposed Carolina Bays Parkway in 
eastern Horry & Georgetown Counties. The proposed Parkway would be 
located in a corridor study area approximately sixty miles in length 
beginning south of the North Carolina state line and extending beyond 
the town of Georgetown. In addition to the main route, which is 
proposed as a controlled access facility, crossings of the Intercostal 
Waterway will be studied along the length of the parkway to provide 
access where traffic and development patterns are co-existant. 
Interchanges at various locations will also be studied.
    The proposed Parkway was included in the Intermodal Surface 
Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 under section 1107, Innovative 
Projects. Funding for the preliminary engineering and environmental 
analysis is derived from that section. Identification of feasible 
funding sources for project implementation will be an important task in 
the location and environmental studies. Alternatives under 
consideration include: (1) Taking no action (no-build); (2) 
Transportation System Management (improvement of existing routes); and, 
(3) build alternatives.
    The FHWA, the SCDOT, and the Commission are seeking input as a part 
of the scoping process, to assist in determining and clarifying issues 
relative to the project. Letters describing the proposed action and 
soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and 
local agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have 
previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. A 
formal scoping meeting with federal, state, and local agencies, and 
other interested parties is planned for 11 a.m., Tuesday, March 29th, 
1994 at the Law Enforcement Center, Myrtle Beach Police Department, 
1101 Oak Street in Myrtle Beach.
    Coordination will be continued with appropriate Federal, State, and 
local agencies, and to private organizations and citizens who have 
previously expressed or are known to have interest in this proposal. A 
serious of public forums will be held as the project develops. The 
draft EIS will be available for public and agency review and comment 
prior to the official public hearing.
    To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed 
action are addressed and all significant issues identified, comments, 
and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or 
questions concerning this proposal action and the EIS should be 
directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.
