The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge

Rick and went to our nephew’s wedding in Charleston, South Carolina, first let me say what a great city Charleston is. Very happy to be back in Gloucester though. Here is a photo of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Does it look familiar?  I took this photo from the boat going out to Fort Sumter.  The small fort in the photo is called Castle Pinckney.
The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in South Carolina, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. The eight lane bridge satisfied the capacity of U.S. Route 17 when it opened in 2005 to replace two obsolete cantilever truss bridges. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the third longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. It was built using the design-build method and was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff.
