    • [EXPIRED] LNM: REMINDER: Dates of Alligator River Bridge Closures to Mar 29, AICW Statute Mile 84


      These closures for maintenance are part of a year long project begun in July, see LNM: Upcoming Maintenance. And as past experience has taught, you may expect changes in these announced dates (see https://cruisersnet.net/168675). For more on an alternate route to avoid these closures, see https://cruisersnet.net/168117. The Alligator River Bridge crosses the Alligator River section of the Waterway at Statute Mile 84, south of flashing marker #12, just south of where the Waterway exits Albemarle Sound.

      Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (Alligator River) – US 64 (Alligator River Bridge) – be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position to facilitate bridge maintenance from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the following dates.
      During these closure periods the bridge will open on signal, if at least 2 hours notice is given. The bridge will also remain in the closed-to-navigation position 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from 6 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, 2018, through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Alternative work dates for these closure periods will be from noon on Thursday, January 18, 2018, through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 24, 2018; and from noon on Thursday, March 22, 2018, through 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 29, 2018. If the alternative work dates from noon on Thursday, January 18, 2018, through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, are used, the bridge will also remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, from January 22, 2018, through March 14, 2018; except for scheduled daily openings at noon, if at least 2 hours notice is given. If the alternative work dates from noon on Thursday, January 18, 2018, through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, are not used, the bridge will also remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, from January 17, 2018, through March 14, 2018; except for scheduled daily openings at noon, if at least 2 hours notice is given. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at any time. During the 24 hour closure periods, the bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and the Croatan Sound to the Pamlico Sound can be used as an alternative route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. During the closure periods with scheduled openings at noon, the bridge will be able to open up for emergencies, if at least one hour notice is given. During the bridge maintenance, a barge will be placed in one navigation span and the other navigation span will be open for vessels to transit through the bridge. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 14 feet above mean high water in the closed position and a horizontal clearance of 100 feet in each navigation span. Work vessels may be reached on VHF-FM channel 16 and the project foreman may be reached at (919) 437-4763 or (443) 790-8905. Mariners should navigate the waterway with extreme caution and due regard for prevailing conditions on the waterway. All others should adjust their transits accordingly and use caution when transiting the area. LNM 01/18
