Increase the Gas Tax (Like Florida and other States) pass the increase on to the tourist, illegals, under the table workers (don't pay tax) then give a rebate to the locals. Go ahead and make the 707 widening to three lanes both directions, with bike paths and sidewalks , better lights at all insections more reflectors and better lines. Horry Officials don't allow/approve any more encroachment on any of the main roads in Horry, Hwy90, 701, 905, 378, 707, 501, 544, 9, etc;!! I'm sure you will have more than enough money to impove/expand all the roads in Horry County.

It appears this means the new 1% tax will never go away which I highly doubt anyone thought it would once it was placed into effect.

It is a bad idea to increase the gas tax until
the county gets good representation in Columbia
where they can get their fair share of the tax
back. Since the residents of Carolina Forest do
not seem interested in electing such a person,
they will have to wait on their roads.

why does everyone want an overpass??? Theres others types of high flow intersections in the world. I would like someone to look into the intersection in Baton Rouge, LA which was designed after one in Mexico City, its at where 3 very busy streets intersect Sherwood Forest, Airline Hwy, and Siegen Lane. I lived in Baton Rouge for many years and before they redesigned the intersection i would wait at the light some times for 10 min. now last time i visited i didnt even realize that we had already passed through the intersection. It seems to me that this type of intersection would be less costly to build and also cause less of a nightmare during construction.
