South Carolina Highway 90 (abbreviated S.C. Highway 90 or SC 90) is a two-lane highway from in Horry County traveling from Red Hill (near Conway) to Little River. It provides a direct connection from Conway to the northern Grand Strand in Little River.

Route description

SC 90 begins at an intersection with U.S. Route 501 Business (US 501 Bus.) in the census designated place (CDP) of Red Hill. It travels west, first briefly through an area of industrial warehouses, then on a arc curving to the south past numerous houses. After turning to the west again, outside of Red Hill, the density of houses lining the road decreases. Major roads that SC 90 intersects include International Drive (providing a connection to Robert Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach) and Old Reaves Ferry Road (providing a connection with SC 905). After an interchange with SC 22, the highway enters the community of Wampee. The highway curves to the southeast at S-Hwy 57 where it heads through open space and farmland. It reaches an intersection with Robert Edge Parkway (unsigned SC 31 Connector) within a finger of North Myrtle Beach. The intersection marks the western terminus of the parkway and is the entrance to the North Myrtle Beach Sports Complex. The parkway also provides access to SC 31 / Carolina Bays Parkway. [2]

SC 90 heads west, first under SC 31, then past numerous housing developments. It also passes in front of North Myrtle Beach Middle School. Upon its intersection with Sea Mountain Highway, much more commercial businesses line the highway. The highway also enters the CDP of Little River at this intersection. Shortly thereafter, Old Highway 17 (unsigned SC 90 Connector) [1] intersects SC 90. It comes to an interchange with US 17 and SC 9, though no access to northbound US 17 / SC 9 is provided at the interchange. For its final one mile (1.6 km), SC 90 passes many businesses before curving to the north and ending at an intersection with US 17. [2]

History

In some times[ when?] SCDOT will construct and widen South Carolina 90 into a 4-lane multilane roadway/ Divided highway with a Cement Median and without the grass it will have road signs and road sign ganties with light fixtures, mileage signs, metal poles, Street lights, traffic lights, side road, T Road, Divided highway ends, signal ahead signs and so many more of them, the Old Reaves Ferry Road connects to SC 905 and it is not intersected with it. The interchange of US 17/ SC 9 Concurrent would have the Trumpet Interchange before and after the bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway from Little River to N. Myrtle Beach.

Major intersections
