The Georgetown County Transportation Committee allocated $240,000 to resurface Beaumont Drive in Pawleys Island.
Beaumont, which is north of the South Causeway, stretches between U.S. Highway 17 and Kings River Road and is home to a Midway Fire Rescue Station.
In other road news, Georgetown County Council approved a request to remove Cusack Court from the Road Improvement list at its meeting last week.
The road was added to the list in 2010 and about $5,500 has been spent on engineering work.
Ray Funnye, the county’s director of Public Services, said there was a “lack of community support” for paving the road.
The remaining money allocated for the paving, $66,536, will be returned to the User Fee Fund.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
