New Wando River Bridge
The Post and Courier recently published the latest information on the new Highway 41 bridge over the Wando River in Mt Pleasant, SC. The new bridge is proposed to be a high 55 feet. The bridge would allow traffic to flow freely in addition to more boat traffic. The current bridge is opened by hand crank only - can you imagine?
In all my years in Mt Pleasant I have yet to see this bridge being opened, but I think it would be a sight to see. I have to admit I have been stuck on the opposite side of the bridge than the boat ramp where we launched our boat due to a high moon tide. The top of our boat would have scraped the bottom of the bridge. It wasn't that bad waiting for the tide to lower a bit and drifting quietly at sunset.
Despite the controversy over the bridge's size our hope is it brings great things to the area of Highway 41 and Clements Ferry Road. It is a wonderful area to reside in as well as boat recreation. To view homes available in this area CLICK HERE.
