Marine Impacts:

  • Due to the anticipated very high winds forecasted for Sunday 10/2, the swing bridge will not be opening to marine traffic. To accommodate the two cancelled openings, the swing bridge will be opened four times on Saturday 10/1 (8am, 10am, 12pm, and 2pm). The bridge openings for the early part of next week are being assessed as we continue to monitor the wind conditions.
  • Previous Alert: Effective, Wednesday, September 28, 2022, the swing bridge will open twice daily, once at 10am and again at 1pm. The bridge operators will be opening the bridge manually, these openings will be slower than normal due to the procedure being used. These daily openings will be in effect until further notice.
