"It’s hot all right," said James Mixson III, of Steadfast Marine Construction, Inc., on May 22, 2014, as he hammered 60-penny nails into 3x10 planks of pressure-treated lumber. Mixson and fellow crew members are constructing a pedestrian bridge for a new multipurpose trail being built along the stretch of S.C. 170 widened between McGarvey’s Corner and S.C. 46. The wooden bridge is one of four being built over wetlands along the trail’s route. Mixson said driving the nails by hand creates a better bond and prevents marring of the wood.
