MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - After months of being divided, part of the Socastee community is once again connected by a key bridge in the area.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation announced that work on the Enterprise Road Bridge, which crosses Carolina Bays Parkway, has been completed a month ahead of schedule The bridge reopened Thursday.

The original completion date for the project was listed as being in late June.

The bridge was damaged last December after a tractor-trailer damaged the underside of the structure. SCDOT said that “due to the extent of the damage, an extensive design of a repair method had to be developed and followed by bids from potential repair contractors.”

The department’s focus will now shift to the bridge on Main Street in Conway.

SCDOT plans to add a metal sheet to the bottom of that bridge to help to catch debris falling from the underside.

No completion date has been provided for that project.
