The City of North Myrtle Beach will make improvements to South Ocean Boulevard between 28th Avenue South and 15th Avenue South. Persons who own property near this road may have an interest in this project.A public information meeting to inform the public about this project is scheduled for November 19, 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m., at North Myrtle Beach City Hall, 1018 Second Avenue South.Meeting attendees will have the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed concept plans, and they are encouraged to review the various displays at the meeting and discuss their questions or concerns with City representatives who will be available at the meeting. Attendees are also encouraged to provide written comments on forms that will be provided at the meeting.Another purpose of the meeting will be to gather information from the public or any interested organization on historic or cultural resources in the area.The purpose of the project is to improve safety, traffic operations, aesthetics and pedestrian accommodations. The City proposes to add a center median (two-way left-turn lane) which will enhance safety by separating left-turning vehicles from through-movement vehicles.Strategically placed landscaped medians and the relocation of above-ground utilities to below ground will improve the aesthetics of the corridor. Sidewalks will line both sides of the roadway and will be separated from the adjacent through lanes by curb and gutter.The proposed improvements will be made in accordance with SCDOT and American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) guidelines.The City has hired Stantec Consulting, an engineering firm located in North Charleston, SC to develop construction plans for improving this road. Stantec Consulting is currently developing conceptual plans for this project. Concept plans will be presented at the November 19 Public Information Meeting. Following the public involvement process, Stantec will develop detailed plans that the City will use to bid this project for construction. Funding is provided by SCDOT through the Grand Strand Area Transportation Study (GSATS), 5 Year Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP).
PROJECT LIMITSThe roadway improvements will be on South Ocean Boulevard between 28th Avenue South and 17th Avenue South. The utility improvements, including the underground electric conversion, will be between 28th Avenue South and 15th Avenue South.TYPICAL SECTIONSThere are two typical sections for the roadway improvements.

At this point in time an evacuation has NOT been ordered but as we ask you to prep for that possibility, depending on Irma’s final track, it is only right that we also let you know the city’s reentry procedures following a hurricane. They are as follows:
— The City of North Myrtle Beach does not require filing residency or business information prior to a storm.
— When reentering the city of North Myrtle Beach after a hurricane property owners, renters and business owners should be prepared to show reentry checkpoint personnel either their drivers license, a copy of a recent water bill or property tax bill, a rental agreement, or other form of identity that proves residency or property ownership within the city.
— Owners of businesses with employees who do not reside within the city limits but are essential to recovery of a business should provide those employees with a letter written on company letterhead identifying them as being essential to the recovery of the business. When identifying an employee, please use their name as shown on their drivers license so that authorities can match the two for verification.
Be aware that these procedures apply only to the City of North Myrtle Beach. Other jurisdictions may have their own requirements.
The City of North Myrtle Beach makes every effort to get its property owners back in as soon as possible following a hurricane because together we can all hasten recovery. However, reentry is completely dependent on the extent of damage that occurs from a hurricane. Our primary objectives following a storm are search and rescue, the identification and closure of hazardous areas, and the prevention of access to properties by those who have no business being there. Patience is always appreciated and helpful.
The accompanying NOAA graphic shows the September 7, 11:00am projected track of Hurricane Irma. Again, don’t concentrate only on the black dots. The potential remains for Irma to track anywhere within the cone or beyond.
National Weather Service Wilmington, NC
We use NWS Wilmington information because it includes northeastern South Carolina– which includes North Myrtle Beach)
— Potential for Coastal Flooding Increasing Each High Tide Sunday into Tuesday
— Ocean water piling up to and into low areas around the dunes is expected to develop. In addition, coastal flooding of other vulnerable low-lying areas along the coast is likely as the wind strengthens between the area of high pressure to the north and the peripheral circulation of Hurricane Irma.
— The onshore wind that develops and increases Sunday, and especially Monday, will result in coastal flooding with inundation of 2-feet to 3-feet possible. Impacts will be greatest around times of high tide Sunday and peaking Monday/Monday night, possibly persisting into Tuesday.
— Elevated water levels and large breaking waves in the surf will cause significant wave run-up and erosion along all area beaches. Inundation is especially likely in those coastal areas made vulnerable by Hurricane Matthews surge. Areas around some of the tidal creeks and bays may experience some inundation as well.
— Northeasterly winds Sunday will turn nearly directly onshore Monday as Irma moves northward across Florida creating a fetch which will drive water toward the Carolina coastline and cause coastal flooding
— Sunday late morning: Minor over-wash, Sunday late evening: Minor over-wash
— Monday noon: Coastal flooding likely,
— Tuesday midnight: Coastal flooding likely
— Tuesday noon: Coastal flooding possible
— Wed midnight: Minor over-wash possible

About a year ago, in an effort to save money and avoid potential costly environmental risks, the city of North Myrtle Beach began transitioning from maintaining its own fuel supply for police, public works and other public vehicles to using fuel cards for fuel purchases at local stations.
The final part of that transition is now underway as contracted crews remove four underground fuel tanks near the city’s vehicle maintenance area on 2nd Avenue South.There are four underground tanks, each weighing about 9,000 pounds and each capable of holding about 10,000 gallons of fuel– two for diesel and two for gasoline.
The tanks will be taken to a scrap yard but before that happens each tank must be emptied of any remaining with a vactor truck and then power washed inside to remove as much diesel or gasoline residue as possible. The power washing is done by a person wearing a haz-mat suit and breathing apparatus, who enters the tank via a hole cut in the end of the tank (see hole photo). Only then can the scrap yard use torches to cut up and recycle the old tanks.
It is estimated that the fuel tanks have been in the ground for more than 40 years and they appear to be in good shape. Once the tanks have been removed, the SC Department of Health & Environmental Control will determine if any soil remediation is necessary at the site.
The city has also joined an alliance that includes large cities like Charlotte, NC to purchase emergency fuel at a reduced rate for those times when hurricanes, ice storms or other events temporarily knock out electrical power and access to fuel at local stations. A firm provides the city with one above-ground tank for diesel fuel and one for gasoline. Whatever fuel the city does not use from the two above-ground emergency tanks each year goes back to the supplier and the city is credited for the return of the product.
