Stevens Creek Bridge — Modoc, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  McCormick County  |  Stevens Creek Bridge

Stevens Creek is the geographical landmark separating Edgefield and McCormick counties. This pony truss bridge was built in 1937 and is one of several truss bridges to cross the creek, including the historic Key Bridge – now open only to pedestrians – which was erected in 1912. The Stevens Creek Bridge is also sometimes referred to as the Modoc Bridge and is supported by several stone Gothic arches, reminiscent of the Waccamaw Memorial Bridge in Conway; in fact, both bridges were built the same year.

The total length of the Stevens Creek Bridge is 480 feet. Around 650 vehicles pass over the bridge each day. It is considered “functionally obsolete,” which does not mean that the bridge is unsafe but that it possess features inadequate to modern traffic, such as lane width. The Stevens Creek Bridge is part of South Carolina Highway 23.

I was so fascinated when I stumbled across this bridge when trying to find Hamilton Branch. I got out and took a picture and looked around. I love it. I hope they never have to take it down and build a new bridge.
