The Building of the New Cooper River Bridge

The Arthur Ravenel Bridge, also sometimes called the new Cooper River Bridge, is an engineering marvel. The cable-stay bridge is the third longest such bridge in the Western hemisphere. The building process was dangerous and required careful safety management and large scaffolding systems.


Watch this video to learn more about the building of the new bridge. The structure is eight lanes across and connects Charleston and Mount Pleasant in South Carolina. It is part of Highway 17, which is a major north-south thoroughfare along the Southeastern seaboard.
