Work continues on the $47 million bridge construction and widening projects of SC 802 from Ribaut Road to Sea Island Parkway.

The key portion is a sister bridge to the J.E. McTeer which would double the amount of traffic that can cross the Beaufort River from Port Royal to Lady's Island. It's the preferred route for most people traveling to the Sea Islands.
