    Marine Industry Partners – Please Complete This Form!
     
    The Martin County Board of County Commissioners and the Business Development Board have been working for years on creating a designated marine transportation route in the Stuart Park of Commerce and Manatee Pocket areas. This will allow easier access for larger vessels being transported by truck to get in the water. We are applying for grant funding that would cover the cost of potentially burying electrical/cable/etc. overhead lines and adjust traffic signals. The proposal also includes an overlay district that would not allow new developments the ability to construct overhead powerlines.
     
     
    In order for the County to submit the application, we would like for you to take a
    few minutes to complete the attached beneficiary form. This is NOT a commitment, but rather a good faith estimate that if all goes well this project would allow your business to grow by jobs and money.

  • Report from South Boulevard Bridge, AICW Statute Mile 1024.7, Palm Beach, FL


    Our thanks to Rebecca Maxwell for this report and anchorage recommendation. The Bingham Islands mentioned as a possible anchorage are on the eastside of the ICW immediately south of the bridge. Flagler Memorial. Royal Park and Southern Blvd bridges were under schedule deviations earlier this year. See Directory Listing below for background information.

    Bridge is under construction. Clearance is 65’ at lo tide and variance can be 3+’. Bridge openings are on :15 and :45. Our 63’ mast kept us on the southside awaiting low tide. We anchored overnight in 7’ just north of a small cut off Bingham Island. We were far enough out of the waterway for traffic and the holding was good. If you get caught on the southside of this bridge waiting for the next opening, this is a welcome anchorage.

  • Monroe Harbour Marina Recommended as a Hurricane Hole, St. Johns River, Sanford, FL

    It’s a fascinating cruise of some 140 nautical miles from the St. Johns River’s inlet at Mayport, to the city of Sanford on Lake Monroe. And here, cruisers will discover Monroe Harbour Marina, a long-time, cruiser friendly spot!

    The safest place I can think of is almost anywhere on the St. Johns river. Monroe Harbour marina is one that I like. It is located in Sanford, which is about 20 miles from Orlando.

  • LNM: Schedule Variation, North Fort Pierce Bridge, Fort Pierce, FL, AICW Statute Mile 965


    With a closed vertical clearance of 25ft, the Fort Pierce North Bridge crosses the Waterway in Fort Pierce.

    FLORIDA – ATLANTIC INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – PALM SHORES TO WEST PALM BEACH – INDIAN RIVER – FORT PIERCE
    NORTH CAUSEWAY A1A (BANTY SAUDERS) BRIDGE: Rule Making.

    The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Fort Pierce North Causeway A1A Bridge (Banty Sanders) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AICW), mile 964.8 at Fort Pierce, St Lucie County FL. This deviation will test a change to the drawbridge operation schedule to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is needed. READ MORE!

    This deviation will allow the bridge to remain in the closed to navigation position from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Fort Pierce North Causeway A1A Bridge (Banty Sanders) across the AICW, mile 964.8 in Fort Pierce, St Lucie County, FL is a bascule bridge. It has a vertical clearance of 26 feet at mean high water in the closed position and a horizontal clearance of 90 feet. The bridge currently operates under CFR 117.5. There has been a large increase in vehicular traffic over the bridge in recent years due to
    large areas along the beach being developed for residential homes. This test deviation would provide for the bridge to operate on an advertised schedule for openings. The draw shall open on signal; except that, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday except Federal Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays, the draw will open three times per hour: on the hour, 20 minutes past the hour and 40 minutes past the hour. Vessels in distress, public vessels of the United States, and tugs with tows must be passed at any time. This deviation is effective from 7 a.m. on September 1, 2018 to 7 a.m. on February 28, 2019. You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-2018-0729 using Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. If you have questions on this test deviation, call or e-mail LT Samuel Rodrigues-Gonzalez, Sector Miami Waterways Management Division, U.S. Coast Guard; telephone 305-535-4307, e-mail Samuel.Rodriguez-Gonzalez@uscg.mil.

    Corps prepares for tropical activity; issues guidance to boaters & campers
    With the possibility of tropical activity in south Florida in the coming days, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District is preparing to respond as needed and providing information to boaters and campers on operational adjustments that will take place at navigation locks and recreation facilities.
    The Jacksonville District activated its emergency operations center (EOC) at noon today (Aug. 26). This
    action allows district staff to devote added attention to the response actions that might be necessary should a tropical cyclone or heavy rain develop.
    “Our staff is coordinating with state and local officials,” said Candida Bronson, Acting Operations Division
    Chief for Jacksonville District. “We will staff our EOC over the weekend, and dispatch liaison officers to the state EOC and other locations as appropriate.”

    Jacksonville District is issuing the following guidance on its operations in south Florida:
    • For boaters, the Corps plans to extend operating hours for its navigation locks when a storm is 72 hours out. The extended hours will remain in place until a storm is eight hours from landfall. To ensure safety of lock operators, the Corps will suspend operations when lightning is in the area, or when winds exceed 35 mph.
    • For campers and visitors to recreation sites, Jacksonville District park rangers will monitor conditions at Corps’ campgrounds and recreation areas. If a county government issues an evacuation order for mobile homes or RV parks in an area where there is a Corps’ campground or recreational facility, rangers will order an evacuation of the facility and advise on shelter locations. Visitors should move all campers, motor homes, tents, vessels, and trailers from facilities under evacuation orders.
    • Field staff will conduct pre-storm evaluation of the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee. Significant rain on the lake or in the Kissimmee basin to the north could cause a rapid rise in the lake over the coming weeks. The current lake stage is 14.67 feet. While no imminent threat of failure exists, the lake stage is in the upper end of the Corps’ preferred range of 12.5-15.5 feet.

Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed to navigation position from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. nightly Sunday through Friday. The bridge will open every 3 hours at 10 p.m. 1 a.m. 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. with a one (1) hour advance notification.
