Charleston's Bridge to Nowhere: The Dream & The Wake Up Call

Posted By Gracen Tilton @ Mar 10th 2020 10:51am In: Charleston SC Real Estate

If you drive around the Upper Peninsula, weaving your way through the lively Wagener Terrace neighborhood, eventually, you’ll hit a dead end. Well, almost.

First, you’ll reach what looks like a seemingly pristine bridge, running parallel to I-26 and completely void of traffic. It’s blocked off by a temporary barrier; but if you were to continue on about half a mile, you'll reach the end of the bridge - and nothing else.

The story of how the bridge came to be, & then $10 million later, not to be, is a tale made complicated by toxic waste, spontaneously combusting shrimp, + regulatory red tape.
