The Fripp Inlet bridge, a 2,067-foot reinforced concrete span, was completed in 1964 and today sees more than 900,000 vehicle crossings per year. Title to the bridge was transferred to the District in 2003, and the District is responsible for insurance, maintenance and repairs. The District’s consulting engineers inspect the bridge annually to ensure its continued safety and structural integrity. Commercial access across the bridge is governed by vehicle weight restrictions.
The District strongly urges every motorist crossing the bridge to follow the posted speed limit of 25 MPH for passenger vehicles and 15 MPH for trucks with 3 or more axles.
