U.S. routes 17, 501 and S.C. 9 provide direct access to the Grand Strand from Interstate Highways 95 and 20. The 28-mile S.C. 22 (Veterans Highway) offers an additional route from U.S. 501 to U.S. 17 on the north end of the Strand. Also completed is the Carolina Bays Parkway (S.C. 31), which runs from S.C. 9 to U.S. 501 and S.C. 544 and ultimately will extend to U.S. 17 south of Myrtle Beach. And in the works, a proposed Interstate 73 corridor would create more of a direct route for visitors to the Grand Strand from states throughout the upper mid-west and north east.
