Hurricane Creek Bridge Replacement
Dennis Corporation is providing professional engineering services to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for the replacement of a bridge over Hurricane Creek located in the Great Pee Dee Heritage Preserve in Darlington County. The existing bridge has a total span of 55 feet, and it consists of precast concrete slabs on timber piles. The bridge spans Hurricane Creek approximately 350 feet upstream of its outfall into the Great Pee Dee River. In addition to the approximately 20,000 acre sub-watershed of Hurricane Creek, the bridge’s proximity to the Great Pee Dee River causes it to be hydraulically influenced by reverse flows during the river’s high water conditions. The roadway and bridge are being designed to continue its primary use for logging operations and maintenance throughout the preserve as well as to provide public access. The new span will eliminate the center bent, improving the hydraulic capacity of the creek and reducing debris buildup in the creek.
