South Carolina made a brilliant move to incorporate a pedestrian path when building this new bridge, which opened in 2005. The view of the surrounding Low Country and Charleston Harbor is spectacular. Below, you'll see gulls in the marsh.
For engineering and construction fans, the ability to see the details up close is a knockout. Examine the ways that the cables are bolted and reinforced for hurricane protection. See how this magnificent structure is put together. Revel in the beauty of geometry!
Parking is provided by the city on a small unpaved gravel lot, just across Bay Street from the entrance to the traffic/pedestrian on-ramp. Look for the green signs.
It is a long walk, so come prepared with good shoes and plenty of time to enjoy it.More
