Date: 2015-12-15
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is extending the dates for a temporary safety zone on the waters of Great Egg Harbor Bay in the vicinity of the Garden State Parkway Bridge in Somers Point, NJ. Due to the severe weather felt in the Mid-Atlantic region in the past month the project has been delayed by a number of weeks and more time is needed to complete the critical repairs for the Garden State Parkway Bridge. The safety zone will continue to restrict vessel traffic on a portion of the Great Egg Harbor Bay while critical girder erection work is being conducted as part of the rehabilitation project of the main navigational channel section of the bridge. This extension of the temporary safety zone is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels from the hazards associated with the bridge construction operations.
