“also known as the New Cooper River Bridge”

The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, also known as the New Cooper River Bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in South Carolina, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. The eight lane bridge satisfied the capacity of U.S. Route 17 when it opened in 2005 to replace two obsolete cantilever truss bridges. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the second longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. It was built using the design-build method and was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff.

It's a beautiful bridge, really nice to walk over especially at night when there's some peace and quiet. It's 2.7 miles so it's actually a really nice distance to jog!

As a Charleston resident of 15 years, I never get tired of Charleston' s beauty. Walking the bridge is a great way to see it...and is a native favorite. There is a great pier and park underneath.

This bridge reminds me of the one in Savannah, GA, but I like this one a bit better. We drove from Charleston to Mt. Pleasant where we stayed in our hotel. There is a walking/jogging path to the right, which seemed to be very popular.

Gorgeous bridge! A lot of people don't realize how long and steep it is, but there's benches along the way. Bring water! It's hot but there's usually a nice breeze.
