It's been a week since the westbound lanes of the Wando River Bridge in Charleston were closed due to one of the eight cables holding the concrete segments together snapped, slowing traffic throughout the Lowcountry.

On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson is joined by South Carolina Public Radio Reporter Victoria Hansen to discuss the latest on the bridge, including how its closure affects transportation of goods coming through Charleston's port. They also look at the Wando River Bridge's history, the state of South Carolina's infrastructure as a whole, and more.
