The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is preparing to install a repaired bearing that assists in opening and closing this drawbridge on US 21 in Beaufort that connects the mainland with Hunting and Fripp Islands.
The installation, which will require a complete closure of the bridge, is scheduled to begin on Sunday August 18 at 10:00 p.m. The closure will end no later than 6:00 a.m. Monday August 19.
If for any reason the work cannot be done during this timeframe, the work will be scheduled for Monday August 19 from 11:00 p.m. until Tuesday August 20 until 5:30 a.m.
