I’m glad we got the see this bridge up close! We were dropped off on one side and ran across it. The views from the bridge were great and we walked around the pier when we got to the Mt Pleasant side of the bridge.

This striking beauty adds to the views while making travel across Charleston a pleasure not to mention managing traffic with its wide and many lanes as well as good signage.
