Haven't driven yet, but it's going to make getting to those South end courses a lot easier for me considering I live in Carolina forest!

I agree. A lot easier.

Drove on the new section today, all concrete roadway from 544 to 707, very smooth.  Once on 707 all lanes are completed right to 17.

We figure from we are at Arcadian Shores area the hour drive to Heritage, True Blue, Caledonia and Pawley's will be lessened  by about 10 to 15 minutes or more, best thing is no traffic lights to sit at.

Yes Gary, the traffic lights on the way back to NMB  were too much .

I don't like to deal w traffic while vacationing. 

I get enough of that in Illinois

They are now looking at extending 31 all the way north to Shalotte

The downside is that road will be very close to Farmstead, Meadowlands,  Crow Creek.

I asked Farmstead if 31 would affect Farm or Meadowlands and take some holes away and the answer was no.

Traffic noise.

The projected path looks pretty close to both.

You know I like peace and quiet.

The articles about Rt 31 going north, show it ending onto Hwy 57. 
While it will help save driving most of 57, there will still be a bottleneck on 
57 from 31 to 17, but still a lot better than now.  
 
One article says studies end in 2022.  It will take awhile to get completed, if approved.

If they actually approve the project it might be too late for me to use it! One plan is to take 31 to the Shallotte bypass - that would be awesome.

Another Study shows it connecting at 17 where 57 ends into 17 at the bend on 17
