Two Major Transportation Initiatives-SC 31 Extension/Highway 74 Study

Two major transportation initiatives have seen forward momentum recently—both of which will have major impact in Brunswick County.

SC31: The extension of SC31 into North Carolina has been a major discussion topic at the last few regional transportation planning meetings. Both North Carolina and South Carolina are committing to spend funds to complete the environmental impact study for the extension into North Carolina.

I74: Two regional transportation planning groups have recently increased calls for a study of the I74/US74 corridor in Brunswick and Columbus Counties. Brunswick Commissioner Frank Williams has been a key advocate for this initiative and the potential impact on local economic development and the port. It has been formally requested that NCDOT conduct a corridor study in this area.
