This is the Robert B. Scarborough Bridge in Charleston. Although not as visually-impressive as the Ravenel Bridge, the 3-mile "James Island Connector" also offers excellent views of the Holy City and its waterways. Other than being smaller and less visually-stimulating, this bridge differs from the Ravenel Bridge in that it's painted standard "freeway white".
Let's compare the concrete from the Ravenel Bridge and the James Island Connector:

Notice that the latter is marred by a "Jackson Pollock" pattern of fading paint. Now consider this: If its concrete had been left its natural color (as is the case with the Ravenel Bridge), the James Island Connector would have cost millions less. In other words, taxpayers spent millions of dollars for no reason but to blemish what should be pristine views of my hometown.
