Ben Sawyer Bridge repaired, easing traffic issues

SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - The Ben Sawyer Bridge has been repaired, easing traffic issues on the islands and in Mt. Pleasant on Monday.

The bridge was reportedly stuck open around 8 a.m., and traffic headed onto the island was rerouted at Simmons Pointe, just before the causeway.  It was repaired and traffic was reopened on Ben Sawyer Boulevard around 8:45 a.m.

The closure prompted an exceptionally-crowded morning on the islands and in Mt. Pleasant.
