Beautiful bridge. Seems a shame to let it go.

Ironic this popped up in the updates tonight... I was working on Luten bridge research (in Washington State)... but this SC bridge also appears to be of Luten patent design (meaning built by company with rights to the Luten patent). The solid railings with rectangle outline plus the ends having one panel of railing slightly tower seem to be reliable for associating Luten patent involvement.

It shows up better on the Bing maps, for those interested.
