Goose Creek Bridge
Posted July 9, 2017, by Al S (Rte495 [at] aol [dot] com)

Contacted operator at 1631-904-3050 who said the openings are scheduled every hour on the half hour. Call on marine channel 13 or above number. In past years, I have not gotten a response on the radio and had to call US Coast Guard in order to get a response from the bridge operator.
