vertical clearance of 20 feet at mean high water in the closed 
position, the current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR

do so at any time and are advised to proceed with caution. The bridges 
will be able to open for emergencies as soon as safely possible. There

waterways. These races have been an annual event; therefore, local 
waterway users should be familiar with these closures. The Coast Guard

that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused 
by the temporary deviation.
