This Footage Of A Rickety South Carolina Bridge Will Take You Back In Time

Most people who ever had an occasion to cross them remember the two bridges that, prior to the opening of the Ravenel Bridge, linked Charleston to Mount Pleasant. Toward the end of their lifespans the older of the two, the John P. Grace Memorial bridge, was a scary proposition for crossing the Cooper River. In fact, ten years before it was taken out of service it received only a 4 out of 100 in a safety rating.
