Construction continues on the new bridge spanning the Beaufort River on S.C. 802, beside the J.E. McTeer Bridge, on Tuesday afternoon. The bridge is part of the S.C. 802 road-widening and improvement project from Robert Smalls Parkway to Sea Island Parkway. Workers on the $34.6 million, 4,200-foot bridge have completed the footings and main span girders. The bridge is scheduled to be finished in August. S.C. 802, called Lady's Island Drive, is resurfaced between Meridian Road and Sea Island Parkway, and grading continues on S.C. 802 in Shell Point. Completion of the $10.9 million road project is expected by year's end. Sales-tax funding, approved by county voters, is being used for this and other Beaufort County road projects.
