McTeer Bridge Closed Sunday for Construction

If you're driving in Beaufort County on Sunday, you won't be able to cross the McTeer Bridge. The main connecting bridge between Lady's Island and Port Royal, South Carolina will be closed all day Sunday for construction. It has only been open for limited traffic since the end of April when a barge carrying a crane struck the bridge, damaging its support beams.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation said the bridge should be open for traffic by next week, although they may still need to close one lane at night periodically to complete final repairs.
