Fantasy Harbour Bridge

The Fantasy Harbour Bridge provides tourists and locals with access to the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, area and its many attractions. The bridge spans the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, connecting with the Fantasy Harbour Interchange at the US 17 Bypass. STV's services included an environmental assessment, geotechnical documentation, public involvement tasks, right-of-way plans, and final roadway and bridge plans for 3.1 miles of roadway approaches and the bridge. STV's team was also responsible for all drainage design for the roadway and bridge, including closed systems, bridge hydraulics and scour analysis. One of the unique design elements is the inclusion of a multi-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists. The $46 million project was recognized by Roads and Bridges magazine as one of the 2009 “Top Ten Bridges” in the United States.
