Tide Boards Replaced at Coinjock Bridge, AICW Statute Mile 50

Capt. Kremski gives us an update on the replacement of tide boards at Coinjock Bridge [Joseph Palmer Bridge], with a fixed vertical clearance of 65ft, spans the canal-like section of the Waterway at Statute Mile 50, between Coinjock Bay and North River. Note that SSECN reported the replacement of the tide boards at the Washington Baum Bridge in September of 2012.

We are happy to report that as of October, 2012 the tidal gauges have been re-installed at the Washington Baum Bridge (Hwy 64) just south of Manteo NC and also at the Joseph Palmer Bridge (Hwy 158) just south of Coinjock Marina. These are no longer hazard areas. Thanks.

Capt. Kremski’s original report:

The tide boards are missing – makes it very exciting to those of us with tall masts! Click Click Click as we went under – call the Marina to water level information prior to attempting this one!

Capt. Kremski contacted the NCDOT regarding the missing tide boards:
Date/Time: 8/26/2012 11:21:13 AM
To the North Carolina Dept. of Transportation
The tide boards are missing from both the Washington Baum Bridge (highway 64) at Manteo and also the Joseph Palmer Bridge Highway (highway 158) at Coinjock. I have a tall mast and this route is the only way I can travel in NC; but it is not safe due to having no way judge if water levels are abnormally high or not.
Can you let me know if this will be fixed soon? I would like to return to NC again, but am not willing to risk my boat (or at least my mast!)
John Kremski

And the response from NCDOT:
Date/Time: 8/27/2012 3:16:59 PM
Mr. Kremski,
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, hopefully we can get some new signs fabricated and have them installed within the next month or so.
Thanks again.
