***UPDATE, 5:13 pm*** - All lanes of the bridge are now open.
Another interesting note - the SCDOT's cameras located on the bridge were removed from their website during the bridge closure and reappeared when the bridge was reopened. The department told The Post & Courier's Andrew Knapp that the issue was on the public's end. Hmmm..
***UPDATE, 3:26 pm*** - The first alert about the bridge being closed was at 10:23 am. We have now hit the 5 hour mark and the Bridge is still closed. On the plus side, a fun hashtag showed up on Twitter - #Ravalanche.
