Myrtle Beach business community encouraged to help reduce traffic congestion in Conway

Work here, live there? The Horry County Emergency Operation Center reminds the public that access across the Wacammaw River is challenging at the moment due to flooding west of us. To help reduce the traffic volume through Conway, the county is asking businesses to consider the following measures:

1) Implement alternate work schedules – allow non-traditional start and end times than the normal 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

2) Encourage longer work shifts. For an example, use 12-h...our shifts rather than traditional 8-hour shifts to reduce the number of people traveling on roads.

3) Allow employees who are not required to be on-site, to work from home or from an alternate location.

4) Alter shipment schedules. For instance, encourage night-time deliveries or deliveries during non-traditional business hours to reduce delivery truck traffic during peak business hours.
