LStar Ventures, the development company for Myrtle Beach-based master-planned community Grande Dunes, has confirmed that the City of Myrtle Beach and council members have approved the installation of a traffic light at Kings Highway and Grande Dunes Boulevard.

"We are thrilled that our work with the City of Myrtle Beach has led to a great solution that offers a safe path to our beloved beach. We want to thank everyone who helped get this initiative approved," said Margaret LaCalle, Coastal North Division of LStar Ventures.

LStar Ventures, the development company for Myrtle Beach-based master-planned community Grande Dunes, has confirmed that the City of Myrtle Beach and council members have approved the installation of a traffic light at Kings Highway and Grande Dunes Boulevard.

This intersection has been a long-standing concern for both Grande Dunes and Myrtle Beach residents. Over the years, as vehicle traffic, as well as pedestrian and cyclist traffic, the Grand Strand Area Transportation Study recently reported that more than 30,000 cars travel the road daily. LStar Ventures saw the need to create a passage across the busy intersection so its residents could safely reach the beach and Grande Dunes Ocean Club.

“The intersection at Kings Highway and Grande Dunes Boulevard has been a top concern for our residents and the LStar team. We are thrilled that our work with the City of Myrtle Beach has led to a great solution that offers a safe path to our beloved beach. We want to thank everyone who helped get this initiative approved,” said Margaret LaCalle, Coastal North Division of LStar Ventures.

Before construction can start at the intersection, city staff will be performing the required pre-construction meeting with their awarded contractor, which is scheduled to take place in February. Implementation of underground infrastructure will take place shortly thereafter.

The timeline for the completion of this work is based upon the delivery and installation of the mast arms that hold the actual lights, which has been ordered and estimated to be delivered in approximately eight months due to manufacturing logistics. Subject to weather, LStar anticipates the traffic light installation to be completed in September 2020.
