US-17 between Charleston and Mt. Pleasant SC

(Bridge Hunter, 3D Satellite (198 Photos), formal name: Arthur Ravenel Bridge)

"Longest Cable-Stayed bridge in America" [Bridge Hunter] That is no longer true. The John James Audubon Bridge has a main span that is 37 feet longer than the 1546 foot main span of this bridge.

The construction company for this bridge bought the crane that was created to build the Luling Bridge.

It replaced two cantilever truss bridges.
