LNM: Upcoming Maintenance, Alligator River Bridge, AICW Statute Mile 84

Calls to the bridge tender and the project foreman gave no indication regarding the impact on navigation this year-long maintenance will have. However, with divers in the water and a crane barge in the channel, extreme caution must be used when passing through this large swing bridge. Also a call to the tender (252-796-7261) on your approach would be wise. Alligator River Bridge is noted for being unable to open when winds exceed 35mph.

An engineering firm, on behalf of North Carolina Department of Transportation, will be performing maintenance at US 64 (Alligator River Bridge) over Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (Alligator River), mile 84.2, in Columbia, NC. READ MORE!

The maintenance will be conducted Monday-Saturday from July 17, 2017 through July 17, 2018; from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. A crane barge and work boats with divers will be in and around the vicinity of the bridge. Maintenance personnel, equipment and vessels will relocate from the moveable span and navigable channel, upon request. Work vessels
may be reached on VHF-FM channel 16. The project foreman can be reached at (919) 437-4763 or (757) 449-4652. Mariners should notify the work foreman no less than one hour prior to navigating through the area and should use extreme caution when transiting the area. Chart 11553 LNM 28/17
