Plan for a day of sightseeing around these six bridges and their nearby communities: Watson Mill Bridge is the longest covered bridge in the state and one of the longest in the U.S.
Poole's Mill Bridge is over Settledown Creek in Poole’s Mill Park Concord Road Bridge has seen several changes over the years and still allows vehicle traffic Cromer's Mill Bridge is a 110-foot bridge, and a descendant of the original Cromer family built the stone abutments. Coheelee Creek Bridge is said to be the souther
North Augusta currently has no plans for its side of the bridge — such as connecting it with the city’s pedestrian trail — Mayor Bob Pettit said.
The city paid $910,000 for 4.27 acres (1.73 hectares) of riverfront land near the bridge in 2009. Pettit said he expects it to be privately developed.
The green iron railing on the bridge is too low and open to be safe, particularly for children, according to Malik. Dickinson designed a cable railing to install adjacent to the existing railing, he said.
Lampposts will run down the center of the path and enough space will allow emergency vehicles to use the bridge. Other features include a water fountain, playground equipment, a maze and musical instruments, shaded benches and device chargers.
Lights will be installed under the bridge that can change colors.
The city’s plans don’t reference bike lanes or the bridge’s connection to the area’s Confederate past. Located on the Jefferson Davis Highway, the bridge is commonly known as the Jefferson Davis Highway Bridge, and plaques on each side note the Confederacy’s only president.
