A new pedestrian and bicycle bridge will soon be coming to The Market Common.
The City of Myrtle Beach received a $100,000 grant from the South Carolina Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department to build the bridge over the outfall of the Thunderbolt Park lake on Farrow Parkway.
According to the City of Myrtle Beach Facebook page: The bridge will be near the existing picnic shelter and bicycle repair station and will allow walkers and bikers to cross over to the far side of the lake’s Avenger Trail. The city received a grant from SCPRT back in 2015 to build the trailhead, restrooms parking and outdoor classroom at that location.
A 25% match required for the grant was donated by the Myrtle Beach Air Base Redevelopment Authority. The Authority also funded the renovations of the building at Thunderbolt Park.
Construction of the bridge is expected to begin in the second half of 2021.
