Socastee Swing Bridge reopens to traffic

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The Socastee Swing Bridge reopened to traffic on Friday, according to Shannon Welch with the South Carolina Department of Transportation.

Earlier in the week, the bridge was closed due to the rising waters of the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Waccamaw River was forecast to crest in the Socastee area on Friday.
