The Waccamaw River Memorial Bridge that’s in the historic part of Conway, SC, USA.
It was built in 1937 and opened to the public in April 1938, designated as a memorial to Horry County citizens who served in America’s wars from the American Revolution through the First World War. Its cost was $370,000. It is 1,270 feet long and carries U.S. Route 501 over the Waccamaw River. It is a multi-span continuous steel girder bridge made up of four steel girder main spans, four continuous steel string approach spans, and concrete piers which support the bridge deck. It features 28 cast-iron light standards along the balustrade, and the Gothic-influenced pointed arches cut out of its concrete piers.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
