The Bridge over Ellis Creek on Folly Road was a staged construction project. It required a detour bridge in order to not hinder the very heavy traffic flow in this area. The average traffic count per day is 60,000 VPD. It is estimated to reach 74,000 VPD by 2022. Cape Romain Contractors worked with SCDOT to resolve multiple utility conflicts on this project.
