NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Cosgrove Avenue Bridge is being replaced because it has been deemed structurally deficient.
The new bridge will have sidewalks on each side that are 5 1/2 feet longer. The bridge itself will be 5 feet higher and 86 feet longer. The new bridge will have four lanes with room for cycling lanes.
The project will cost between $15 and $25 million dollars. It should be complete by 2014.
There will be a hearing Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Mary Ford Elementary School cafeteria in Charleston Heights. If you would like to speak, you will need to be there early to sign up.
