Traffic chute system to be used in Atlantic Beach for Bikefest

Friday, May 24 at 5 a.m., the North Myrtle Beach Public Works Department will put up traffic barricades along the east side of Highway 17 from 27th Avenue South to 37th Avenue South.

The chute enables people heading to the Atlantic Beach Bikefest to stay in the far right northbound lane on Highway 17 to enter the town.

Those bypassing the event can continue on Highway 17 in the other lane without getting stuck in festival traffic.
