Arthur J Ravenel, Jr Bridge
Charleston, South Carolina
Opening in 2005, one year ahead of schedule, and reaching 1546 feet over the Cooper River, the Arthur J Ravenel, Jr Bridge is North America’s longest cable stay span.  Replacing both the John P Grace Bridge (1929) and the Silas N Pearman Bridge (1966), the new bridge has 8 lanes of traffic and a 12 foot shared pedestrian and bicycle lane which overlooks the Charleston Harbor.
