SCDNR Property Closures and Advisories

Great Pee Dee River Heritage Preserve/Wildlife Management Area Temporarily Closed to Vehicular Access:
Beginning on or about 6 May 2019 the bridge over Hurricane Creek will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic. The SCDNR is replacing the old bridge to provide for safer public access, and to allow heavy equipment to cross the creek to repair and maintain the public access road to the Great Pee Dee River. Depending on weather conditions, the construction is expected to take five or more weeks. The department regrets any temporary inconvenience to members of the public.


Temporary Road Closure Will Limit Access to Lewis Ocean Bay the Morning of April 28

Due to road closures associated with the upcoming International Drive Road Race in Myrtle Beach, access to Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve will be limited this coming Sunday [April 28] during the morning hours. Access to the preserve via Highway 31 (the Carolina Bays Parkway) will be closed during this time. The preserve will be accessible via the entrance on Highway 90 at International Drive during the race, but travel to the main parking lot and information kiosk near Kingston road will be via an escorted pace car only, and visitors are urged to use extreme caution, as there will be runners of all ages using the road at this time.

Per Horry County Government:

On the day of the event, International Drive will be closed between the International Drive Ballfields and Highway 90 beginning at 5:00 a.m. through the duration of the event, approximately 12:00 noon. Traffic will NOT be able to travel between Highway 90 and Carolina Forest on International Drive. Access will be provided to Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve and the Horry County Solid Waste Authority from Highway 90 ONLY. Anyone traveling in the area should use caution and utilize alternate routes if possible.


Due to storm damage on Friday April 19, 2019, the Hamilton Ridge WMA check station and campground are closed until further notice. Turkey Hunters should use the Webb WMA kiosk for sign in and hang tags.
