Conway is working to spruce up its image to get some of the hundreds of thousands of motorists who pass through each year on their way to the beach to stop and visit.
City council members have agreed to bury power lines in the downtown area, The (Myrtle Beach) Sun News reports. Conway has been working for a decade to put power lines underground.
Most motorists drive through Conway on U.S. 501 heading to Myrtle Beach, which is about a dozen miles away, and to other destinations along the shore.
City administrator Bill Graham said the latest project to bury lines along Fourth Avenue will create a more inviting front door for visitors to the town. The town later plans to bury the lines along busy U.S. 501.
