The South Carolina Department of Transportation will be painting the I-528 Don Holt Bridge spanning the Cooper River in Charleston, SC. The containment preparations will reduce bridge clearance by up to five feet over the channel throughout the duration of the project. The maintenance will be ongoing through July, 2017. Mariners are urged to plan transits accordingly and remain to the eastern side of the channel, as practicable, to avoid unnecessary disruptions. For questions regarding the closure, please contact the South Carolina Specialized Bridge Division at: (843) 740-1695. If you have additional questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact Coast Guard Sector Charleston at: (843) 740-7050. Click here for complete MSIB.
