The Talmadge Memorial Bridge was completed in November, 1990. It is described as a “cable-stayed bridge”, which replaced the previous cantilever truss bridge which was built in 1953. The bridge provides 185 ft. of vertical navigational clearance at Mean High Water. With a main span of 1100 ft. and a total length of 1.9 miles the new Talmadge Memorial carries the 4 lanes of traffic on Hwy 17 over the Savannah River.
