Hilton Head Bridge Project Gets $120 Million in State Funding

The State Infrastructure Bank granted Beaufort County $120 million to help pay for the replacement of Hilton Head Island’s bridges.

The U.S. 278 corridor project proposes improving or replacing the Karl Bowers Bridge and J. Wilton Graves Bridge connecting Hilton Head Island to the mainland and adjoining roadwork from Moss Creek Drive to Spanish Wells Road.

It is expected to cost $272 million, with $80 million funded through a 1 cent sales tax approved by county voters.
