This deviation is necessary to facilitate the painting of the bridge and safety of the work crew. The bridge is a single-leaf bascule bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed to navigation position of 24 feet at mean high water. The vertical clearance of the bridge will be reduced by 3 feet to 21 feet mean high water through the completion of the painting project in December of 2018.

Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation.
