A complete list of bridges in South Carolina with pictures. Famous SC bridges, the biggest and the highest. From the earliest arch and beam bridges to the newest suspension and truss bridges, this list has them all. We build bridges to span obstacles, be it a valley, waterway, or another road. A bridge's function designates its design. A bridge can can be temporary, or it can last for millennia. Many Roman bridges are still standing (and even in use) today. No surprise then that bridges often become iconic landmarks for their region.

The James B. Edwards Bridge is a pair of pre-cast concrete box girder bridges that span the Wando River between Mount Pleasant and Daniel Island. It was built in 1989 by the South Carolina Department of Transportation. The bridge is named for James B. Edwards, who was a governor of South Carolina, Secretary of Energy, and long-time president of the Medical University of South Carolina. The bridge was constructed of pre-cast concrete segments using top-down construction. Segments were transported along already completed spans and put in place from above.
