Additional Details:
The Ashley River Memorial Bridge spanning the Ashley River at Charleston, S. C., forms an important link in the Atlantic Coastal Highway between North Atlantic states and Florida. This bridge, built at a coast of $1,200,000, was dedicated May 6, 1926, to the memory of South Carolina's soldiers dead of the World War. To accommodate the limited navigation of the Ashley River, a double bascule draw of 110 feet is provided. This bridge has been declared by prominent engineering authorities to be one of the most beautiful structures in the United States.
