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.

    The temporary bridge will have a vertical clearance of 14 feet in the closed position and 65 feet in the open position with a 125-foot wide navigable channel. The bridge will maintain an opening schedule of twice per hour at 15 minutes and 45 minutes past the hour. There may be half-channel closures during construction.

    Subject line should read “Southern Blvd Bridge” And this is a temporary lift bridge, with two vertical clearance distances — one in the down position and one in the up position. See photo in website link below
