Lake Worth/Lake Avenue Bridge crosses the Waterway at Statue Mile 1029, south of marker #33 and has a closed vertical clearance of 35ft. Formerly this span opened no demand, but, as you will see below, no longer!
Note the Cruisers’ Net has researched this issue, courtesy of our Senior Editor, Captain Larry Dorminy, and have learned the new schedule outlined below is in effect, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
New opening schedule for the Lake Avenue Bridge…15 and 45 after the hour. No longer on request.
A phone call to the USCG confirms this information from Capt. Tice and also that the Lantana Bridge replacement is scheduled to be completed by November, 2013.
The change from on demand is temporary while the Lantana bridge is being replaced. Per the bridge tender.
