Murrells Inlet 2020 Infrastructure Improvements and Beautification Survey
Murrells Inlet 2020 conducted a survey in 2015. As part of the survey we asked the community for feedback as to what community infrastructure improvements you would like to see in the Murrells Inlet area. Based on the answers, a strategic plan was formed with a committee solely dedicated to infrastructure improvements. Over the last 3 years, this committee has worked to make much needed improvements to the area. These improvements include:
*The creation of 4 pedestrian crosswalks and signage in the Marshwalk Business District
*The repainting of 15 stripe miles of existing bike lanes along Hwy 17 Business. This includes the use of thermal reflective paint (brightly reflects at night) and the widening of the stripes.
*The creation of a plan for a 4-mile multipurpose (biking and walking) path throughout Murrells Inlet (the Inlet to Intracoastal Multipurpose Path). Currently moving to construction phase. Groundbreaking expected for end of January/early February.
*Repair, replacement, and maintenance of "Welcome to Murrells Inlet" signage at the north end and south end of Hwy 17 Business and other various locations in Murrells Inlet.
*Regular mowing, lawncare and litter clean-up of the medians on Hwy 17 Bypass through Murrells Inlet.
*Regularly scheduled monthly community clean-ups.
*A constructed wetland to filter stormwater runoff before it hits the Inlet.
