FLORIDA – ATLANTIC INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – TOLOMATO RIVER TO PALM SHORES – HIGHBRIDGE (LEONARD B KNOX) BRIDGE: Fender Replacement
The fender system replacement of the Highbridge Road (Leonard B. Knox) Bridge across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway mile 816.0, Volusia County, Florida will commence on or about October 22, 2012. Cline Construction has advised this office that they will be restricting the waterway and vessels requiring the full 91 feet of horizontal clearance are required to provide two hours advance notice to allow time to clear the channel. Advance notice can be provided to the bridge tender on VHF-FM channel 9. All vessels are requested to maintain minimum wake/slow speed throughout the construction zone. Chart 11485
ICW Closed for period of times at the L.B.Knox Bridge at Mile Marker 811 [sic] due to repairs being made to the Bridge Fender System. Not sure yet how long the closures are lasting. Will advise.

On 05 February 2013 we found two barges blocking the bridge. We were told that opening would be available at 1000, 1400, and 1600 hrs. We and 6 other boats passed through at 1420. Not much room for maneuvering.
Just came through the LB Knox bridge and spoke to the bridge tender – there are no restrictions on weekends, but weekdays the bridge could be closed for hours or the whole day at a time. Best bet is to call on a landline and ask what they anticipate for the time of your specific passage – 386-441-0777.
Another timely article for me – transiting that bridge tomorrow.
