Wyse Ferry Bridge Dive on 04-21-2012. Diving with ScubaJohns.com dive shop. Divers Joey, Steve (myself), and Manny. Great Dive. Manny had to turn the dive early due to an equipment issue so mainly just Joey and myself in the video. 112' max depth, temp at bottom was 49*. Thanks again to ScubaJohns for another great Lake Murray dive!

Found a Video on YouTube I posted to the page. It's very interesting. The Road Deck is gone so all that remains is the superstructure.

Added this bridge from the comments from the Old Kimberling City Bridge, in Stone County, MO. Perhaps the pictures and comments can be moved over.
