GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) – The South Carolina National Guard used a helicopter to help install a new bridge at Lake Conestee Nature Preserve, Tuesday morning.
The bridge was installed over Marrow Bone Creek after being delivered by a CH-47F Chinook heavy lift helicopter.
Flooding in November 2018 destroyed the previous bridge in the nature preserve.
The national guard used the bridge install as a training exercise.
The Conestee Foundation raised money for the construction and installation of the 18,500 pound, 84 foot long bridge.
