The City of Myrtle Beach awarded grant to build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge
The City of Myrtle Beach has received a $100,000 grant from the South Carolina Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department to build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the outfall of the Thunderbolt Park lake on Farrow Parkway. The bridge will be near the existing picnic shelter and bicycle repair station and will allow walkers and bikers to cross over to the far side of the lake’s Avenger Trail. The city received a grant from SCPRT back in 2015 to build the trailhead, restrooms parking and outdoor classroom at that location. Construction of the bridge is expected to begin in the second half of 2021.
