MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – The Mount Pleasant Police Department (MPPD) on Thursday temporarily closed the Ben Sawyer Bridge in both directions due to downed electrical wires.
According to Paul Fischer with Dominion Energy, “high coastal winds caused one of [Dominion’s] poles in the marsh to lean.”
Crews secured the area, and will make final repairs on Friday.
No customers were impacted by the outage, according to Fischer.
The area is safe and cleared as of 9:20 p.m.
