Fantasy Harbour Bridge

For the millions of tourists and locals that visit Myrtle Beach, SC, each year, the Fantasy Harbour Bridge serves as a vital connection to the area’s many attractions. Spanning the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, the new, five-lane bridge links with the Fantasy Harbour Interchange at the US 17 Bypass and features a multi-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The firm developed all drainage designs for the roadway and bridge, including closed systems, bridge hydraulics and scour analysis.
