Myrtle Beach adopts barricade policy to avoid competing with business

To avoid competing with private businesses, Myrtle Beach will not loan or rent out the barricades it purchased earlier this year for use during Memorial Day weekend and other special events. 

Myrtle Beach will spend a little more than $1 million over the next three years on barricades and bicycle racks that were used to control traffic during Memorial Day weekend and officials say will be used throughout the year. The city has 7,677 bicycle rack barricades and 1,656 hydro barriers.
