Hwatae-Dolsan Bridge Opens


Yeosu City and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport have announced that the 157 billion won Hwatae Bridge has finally opened today after 11 years of construction.


About 500 citizens attended the opening ceremony for the structure, including Yeosu Mayor Ju Cheol Hyun, Yeosu City Council President Park Cheong Jae and local residents.


The 3.82 km bridge links Dolsan and Hwatae Islands and boasts the tallest support towers of any bridge in the nation. The structure is just one of eleven bridge construction projects in the works by the Ministry planned to be completed by 2020.
