According to the Charleston Police Department’s Twitter account, the Northbound lanes of the Ravenel Bridge will remain CLOSED until approximately 4 pm. The closure was prompted after a tractor trailer truck was involved in an accident and spilled some fuel on the road.

The remaining fuel has to be transferred to an empty tanker truck. The entire bridge will be shutdown during that transfer due to its hazardous nature.
