At the time of design, Fantasy Harbour Bridge represented the longest spliced, post-tensioned concrete I-girder bridge in the United States, at 330 feet in main span length. The 1,800-feet long bridge rises 65 feet above the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, connecting the US 17 Bypass with the new Hard Rock Park. The bridge’s foundation system, designed by Falcon, was the first ever aggregate pier ground improvement system installed for a bridge project in South Carolina. The project is a vital link in the “metropolitan loop” for the fast-growing community of Myrtle Beach.
