[EXPIRED] LNM: Emergency Repairs Complete on North Landing Bridge, VA AICW Statute Mile 20.2
See North Landing Bridge Restricted for the original Local Notice. Thank you, Matt the Bridge Tender for these updates.
Verbal from the bridge operator: They have completed most of the repairs to the North Landing Bridge. They will be doing one span openings (38 feet horizontal clearance) and can do 2 span openings (full opening) upon request at any time for larger vessels (e.g. tugs & barges). They expect to complete all repairs Monday morning (20 May) after which all openings should be full openings.
If I see something official from the USCG or USACE I’ll pass it along.
