Sunset Beach Bridge Is Finally Open!!!

Real Estate Agent with S & L Properties

I was assigned floor duty this afternoon, and I had to sit downstairs in the main entry because our administrative assistant left early.  Starting around 2:30 calls started coming in from other agents and clients excitedly telling us that the bridge was finally open.  A few weeks, a grand opening was held and later locals and visitors were allowed to walk over the bridge but drivers had to wait for a paint contractor to paint the lanes.  It was scheduled for next week but obviously, the contractor completed the task more long, hot summer waits for the bridge to open.  Those days are gone...even better, boats can pass all the time without waiting for the swingbridge.  HooRay!!!!!

Maybe I'll get over one day and cross that bridge.

You're invited anytime.  The views of the Atlantic Ocean are spectacular as you crest the top.

Safety and convenience.

Yes, the new Sunset Beach Bridge has opened. Woo---hoo!

The old bridge was fun to traverse, but I always wondered if I was going to get a flat tire as I passed over the bridge deck that resembled grandmas' wash board.

Or, was I going to be stuck on the Island side after a day of duty at the CB Sloane office because the bridge broke in the open position.

Several motor vehicle accidents have already occurred at the entrance/exit to the new bridge.

Is there a traffic light in the near future? Or would a traffic rotary, circle or "round-about " be a better solution?

The general courtesy in a traffic rotary is "...if your bumper's in front of have the right of way".
