Arthur Revenal (Cooper River) Bridge, South Carolina

Arthur Revenal bridge is the largest cable suspension bridge in North America.

The traveller, a sort of horizontal elevator that moves along the inner edges of the edge girders, is used for cleaning, inspections and maintenance. With its 2 telescopic extensions it is 144 feet long and spans the entire bridge platform. It is the longest single unit traveler in the world.

SEP president and designer Bill Nesteruk is famous for his elevator magic, going around curves and uphill and downhill without sliding.

Elevator rounds bend at lower level of tower.
