    • New Bern NC Drawbridge Schedule Effective October 16th, 2020, Neuse River


      New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club

      With a closed vertical clearance of 14ft, the Alfred Cunningham Bridge connects New Bern and James City crossing the intersection of the Trent and Neuse Rivers. New Bern is home to CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, New Bern Grand Marina on the northern banks of the Trent River.

       

       

       
      New Bern Drawbridge To Have Set Operating Schedule
       
       
      NEW BERN, Craven County — Commuters and boaters in New Bern need to be aware — the New Bern drawbridge will soon have a regular schedule.
       
      Beginning Oct.16, the Alfred E. Cunningham Bridge in New Bern will operate on a schedule, according to a recent ordinance added to the federal registry this week.
       
      The ordinance, 117.853 Trent River, states the bridge will open every hour and every half hour from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. After 10 p.m., the bridge will open upon request.
       
      Prior to the ordinance, the bridge operated on request the majority of the time, making it difficult for people to predict when they may get stuck, and how often.
       
         “This allows for motorists to plan around the bridge opening and for boaters to plan around the bridge opening,” said Matt Montanye, Director of Public Works for the City of New Bern.
      Meg Wethington, who commutes back and forth from New Bern to James City every day, frequently gets stuck at the bridge.
       
         “It’s just inevitable, any time of day,” Wethington said. “I’ve been late to work, I have texted into work with a picture, saying ‘Hey, stuck at the New Bern drawbridge again!'” Wethington says she has even seen the drawbridge open twice in a matter of 10 minutes.
       
      According to data from United States Coast Guard, during the peak boating season months of June and July, as many as 306 vessels would pass under the bridge in a single-month period. Montanye says this ordinance should help group those crossings together so commuters are not constantly getting stuck.
       
      Another change to take place under the new ordinance, according to Montanye, is during rush hour times. Before the ordinance, the bridge would stay closed from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. but would open at 7:30 a.m., a peak travel time. Similarly, the bridge would close from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the evening but would open at 5 p.m. for any boat wanting to cross underneath.
       
         “It just tends to be at 5 o’clock every day when people are getting out of work, businesses are closing, that the bridge tends to open,” Montanye explained.
       
      Under the new ordinance, officials say the bridge will stay closed during the entire rush hour windows, no longer opening at 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
       
         “What this does, it allows that rush hour traffic that comes into downtown in the morning and out of town in the evening to not worry about that bridge opening,” he said.Wethington says, as a commuter, she is thrilled.
       
         “I think it’s fabulous, so people can plan, know what’s going on, especially during holidays or busy seasons,” she said. “It really will help the flow of traffic.”
       
      While some in the community expressed concern with the bridge opening on every hour and half hour, Montanye makes it clear that will only happen if — and only if — a vessel is requesting passage. The Public Works Director also says the draw will open upon request at all times for vessels of public safety, commercial vessels, tugs with or without barges and all vessels in distress.
       
      Montanye, who spearheaded the project, says the City first drew up the ordinance in June of 2018 but had to send it through the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the United States Coast Guard before it could be added to the federal registry. Montanye says he got confirmation of the approval Monday.
       
      New Bern now joins several cities across the country with similar ordinances — including in the states of New Jersey, Louisiana, Florida and many others.

    • The Mullet Wrapper from the Gulfport Historical Society, Gulfport, FL


      Gulfport Marina includes dry boat storage, ship store, bathroom, public boat ramp, parking, fueling stations, lighted range markers and guest docking facility.

      During the pandemic, the Gulfport Historical Society continues its educational activities for the City of Gulfport, home to Gulfport Municipal Marina, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, located on the northern shores of Boca Ciega Bay and easily accessible from the Western Florida ICW, just north of Tampa Bay.


      Volume VII, 2020
      Calling All Superheroes!

      We’re back! COVID-19 may have had us down, but we’re not out. The Gulfport Historical Society is bringing back Porch Parties. The next one kicks off with civic fervor at 7 p.m. on Oct. 9.at the Gulfport History Museum, located at 5301 28th Ave. S. Join us as we celebrate our pride for the Gulfport community and everyday heroes. To take the festivities up a notch, patrons are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite superhero or heroine.

      There will be a special appearance by Captain Vote and Tanya Turnout, local champions who are encouraging 100 percent voter turnout for Gulfport and will be providing details on their voter registration efforts. Another highlight of this event will be snapshots of volunteers who made a difference throughout our city’s history.

      For more information, and to register for this no-cost event, visit the Gulfport Historical Society’s website.

       
       
       
       

      Is There An Artist In The House?

      Gulfport has a story to tell, numerous stories in fact. In 1985, the first edition of the 341-page book, “Our Story of Gulfport, Florida,” came off the press. It’s time to reissue and we’re looking for area artists to submit designs for a new publication cover. While seeking a new design, we’d like one that also pays homage to the former book cover illustration.  For further details, please contact us at info@gulfporthistoricalsociety.org.

      Painters Needed

      We’ve finished the first phase of rejuvenating the Gulfport Art Center. Now that the cleaning is finished, the Gulfport Historical Society is in need of volunteers to help paint the interior. If you can lend a hand, would you please give a shout out by contacting us at info@gulfporthistoricalsociety.org.

      No time for painting?  Not comfortable in public yet? No problem.  We are going to need a lot of KILLZ and paint, so please consider donating. You can email us so that we can coordinate getting your generous donations.
