Construction of the new high-level fixed-span Harbor River Bridge spanning St. Helena and Harbor islands is still under way with the span now clearly visible. The current “swing bridge” is 78 years old and closes to vehicular traffic to allow shrimp boats to pass. The new single-span, 3,353-foot long bridge, according to the S.C. Dept. of Transportation, will be high enough to allow the boats to pass unimpeded underneath the bridge without stopping vehicular traffic. Photo by Bob Sofaly.
