Under the regular operating schedule, the swing bridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5. In the closed position to vessels, the bridge has no available vertical clearance. To facilitate repairs, the swing span will be closed to vessels requiring an opening from 9 a.m. on November 15, 2011 until and including 6 p.m. on November 17, 2011. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Neuse River.

The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with commercial and recreational waterway users. The Coast Guard will inform all users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary deviation.
