Harbor Island Bridge to be closed Sunday night

emoody@beaufortgazette.comAugust 15, 2013 

Harbor River Bridge, the only vehicle bridge that connects Harbor, Hunting and Fripp islands to St. Helena Island, will again be closed from 10 p.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday, according to Beaufort County Traffic Management.

If additional repairs are needed, the bridge will also be closed from 11 p.m. Monday to about 5 a.m. Tuesday.

No traffic in either direction will be allowed across the bridge during the closures.

The closures are for follow-up work to repairs done earlier this month, according to traffic management officials.

A piece of equipment that was removed during the Aug. 4-5 closure is going to be re-installed. The swing bridge has been closed to boat traffic for most of the month because of the repairs.

Law enforcement, fire and EMS agencies have plans in place for response in the case of an emergency while the bridge is closed.
