Bridge Design


In several public hearings held throughout the Charleston region, the local public chose the diamond tower design from other options. The cable stayed span hangs from two diamond towers at each end of the 1546 foot span. A signature icon for the Charleston region, these towers reach 575 feet into the air and support a road deck about 200 feet above the median high tide mark. Specialty features include platforms and tower elevators included for safety inspections and maintenance.
