SCDOT is working on improvements to one of the most dangerous intersections in the county.

Between backed up traffic down Highway 501, to last-minute lane changes before a confusing intersection, Highway 501 and East Cox Ferry Road in Conway can be an everyday headache for Horry County drivers.

But it’s not just a headache. It can be deadly.

Officials with the South Carolina Department of Public Safety said in 2017, 2018, and 2019, throughout each year, there were over 100 accidents at the intersection. In 2019, a person was killed.

But the DOT said upgrades are coming.

“So anytime we look at improving intersections we look at a lot of these same type of corrective measures. As far as offsetting left-turn lanes, adding additional turn lanes,”

Among Us Reveals New Features, New Stage, and Server Improvements Coming Soon

Among Us 2 has been canceled, and there’s a good reason why. Among Us debuted back in 2018 from developer InnerSloth to little attention. Fast-forward to September 2020, it’s the hottest game on the Internet. Why? Well, it mostly comes down to Twitch streamers and YouTubers who recently picked up the game in a major way starting last month. This led to viewers en masse picking up the game, and because of the game’s quality, it has retained many of these players. And that’s the short version of how we got to today, where it’s dethroned Fall Guys as the biggest game on the Internet.

So, why is Among Us 2 being canceled? Well, according to developer Inner Sloth, it’s to further support the current game. As the developer notes, the allure of a sequel is that the codebase for the current game is a total mess, which makes supporting

County Executive Calvin Ball said improvements are now officially moving forward on the Guilford Road and Oakland Mills Road intersection.

The community of Guilford used to be part of rural Howard County, but recent development has created a lot more traffic.

“This intersection has been the source of community pain for many years, including countless accidents and even a tragic loss of life,” Howard County Councilwoman Christiana Rigby said.

When WJZ first aired this story in November 2019, community leaders expressed concern about the dangers posed by the intersection of Guildford and Oakland Mills roads.

“The problem is not enough pedestrian access in this community,” Rev. Tyrone Jones, of First Baptist Church of Guilford, said.

$30M in improvements coming for B.C. logging road where two students died

VICTORIA — Improvements are coming to a narrow logging road on Vancouver Island where members of the local First Nations as well as two university students have lost their lives.

Indigenous Relations Minister Scott Fraser announced today that just over $30 million will be spent over three years to make Bamfield Road safer.

He says the province is contributing $25.7 million while the Huu-ay-aht First Nation will spend about $5 million on the project.

Sunday marks the first anniversary of a bus crash that killed two University of Victoria students and injured many others.

Forty-five students and two teaching assistants were headed to the Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre aboard a chartered bus that moved over for an approaching vehicle and rolled down an embankment.

Chief Coun. Robert Dennis Sr. says all those who’ve lost loved ones share a common grief.

“We share some heavy burdens and we share losses of
