FLORIDA – ATLANTIC INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – PALM SHORES TO WEST PALM BEACH – INDIAN RIVER – NASA PARKWAY/SR 405 BRIDGE: Bridge Repairs.
Royal Bridge Incorporated has advised the Coast Guard that they will be painting the NASA Parkway/Addison Point/SR 405 Bridge across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway mile 885, Canaveral, Florida from April 1 to May 29, 2013. This office has been advised that only one of the four spans is open; therefore, the mariner will need to request a normal bridge opening at this location.
Starting May 9, 2013, the curfew period for the John F. Kennedy Space Center bridge, mile 885 at Addison Point will be extended to read:. The draw shall open on signal; except that, from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, the draw need not open. This portion of the work will be completed on June 21, 2013.
NASA, the bridge owner, has advised that they will be scheduling work on this bridge that may require single-leaf operations from Monday 13 May through Tuesday 2 July 2013. The details for double-leaf openings will be published in a future Local Notice to Mariners. Ref: LNM 08 through 19-13 Chart: 11485
We anchored south of the bridge last night (May 13). We were aware of the normal restricted opening schedule (closed 6:30 am to 8:00 am and 3:30 to 5:00 pm). We called the bridge tender to verify this schedule and were assured that we could get through before 6:30 am. When we called the bridge this morning to request an opening, we were informed that they are on a new schedule (since May 9) due to construction: closed 6:00 am-8:00 am. We did not ask about the afternoon schedule.
