emoody@beaufortgazette.comAugust 18, 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. today until 6 a.m. Monday, according to Beaufort County Traffic Management.

If additional repairs are needed, the bridge also will be closed from 11 p.m. Monday until 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 on repairs done earlier this month, according to traffic management officials.

Equipment that was removed during the Aug. 4-5 closure will be reinstalled. 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.
