Fender Repairs on Two Bridges on the NC AICW, Statute Miles 253.3 and 283.1

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 09-11-2012

Because one of the bridges affected by these fender repairs is a fixed span, because the opening schedule of the bascule bridge is unchanged, and because very few cruising vessels require greater than 50ft HORIZONTAL clearance, most cruising vessels will be be unaffected by these fender repairs.

NC – NEUSE RIVER TO MYRTLE GROVE SOUND/NEW RIVER TO CAPE FEAR RIVER (AIWW) – BRIDGE FENDER REPAIRS
Bridge fender repairs are being conducted on the following bridges:
A. NC 210 Fixed Bridge at Mile 253.3 AIWW at North Topsail Inlet from 12 September until 12 December, 2012.
B. U.S. 74/76 Bascule Bridge at Mile 283.1 AIWW at Wrightsville Beach from 01 September until 01 May, 2013.
To facilitate repairs, a crane barge will reduce the available horizontal clearance in the navigable channel from 90 feet to 50 feet. Vessels requiring greater than 50 feet horizontal clearance to safely navigate through the bridge may contact the work supervisor on VHF-FM channels 13 or 16 to arrange for removal the barge. A one hour prior notice of transit is requested. A NO WAKE transit is requested of all vessels. Charts: 11541, 11534
