MEDIA STATEMENT

In response to recent I-73 road project permit issued, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

“The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce is thrilled that the federal government has finally issued a permit for the construction of Interstate 73.”

“Many people have championed this effort for more than two decades. We are thankful for unwavering support from Congressman Rice, our Congressional delegation, our State Legislative delegation and the South Carolina Department of Transportation.”

“Now that the federal government has issued the permit, we can begin to gather the funds to complete this important project. I-73 will bring more jobs, higher wages, economic growth and an alternate hurricane evacuation route.”
