Ravenel Bridge back open after traffic snarled for hours

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- An incident closed down the Ravenel Bridge southbound from Mount Pleasant to Charleston, police said Monday. It reopened around noon.

The incident began around 7 a.m. with two lanes closed. At one point in the morning, a third lane opened, but traffic was still backed up to Anna Knapp Blvd.

By 11:45 a.m., police shut down the southbound lanes completely only to open it back up 15 minutes later.

An accident on I-526 also held up drivers looking for an alternate route to the downtown area but that scene was cleared by the time the Ravenel Bridge closed.
