Date: Friday August 4th, 2023
Notice is given to mariners that the Mobile River will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED at River Mile 14 (CSX Bridge) on Friday, 4 August 2023. The closure will last approximately 6-hours from 0800 to 1400 (CST). This will be the last closure until September.
During 2 - 4 August, prior to the scheduled river closure, Scott Bridge Company will be on-site performing repairs/replacements of line shafts and couplings. Installation of each line shaft will last approximately 4-hours each. These installations will occur during periods of low or no vessel traffic that occur at the bridge. Scott Bridge Company will communicate via marine radio to verify that no vessels are approaching the bridge prior to beginning this work.
Mariners should exercise extreme caution when transiting this area during 2 - 4 August 2023, and should contact the bridge via marine radio when approaching the river mile 14 area.
