Ship Channel Temporary Closure and Reduced Clearance
Revised Notice September 29, 2011

Please be advised that Ship Channel (Great Egg Harbor) will be closed on Monday, October 3, 2011 at 7 am. The channel is scheduled to reopen with a reduced vertical clearance of 40 feet on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 5 pm. The reduced clearance is scheduled to be in effect until February 3, 2012.

The temporary Ship Channel closure is required to accommodate the placement of construction barges carrying concrete beams, construction cranes, and the equipment required to set the beams over the Ship Channel bridge span.

The final vertical clearance will be 55 feet in the relocated channel. Mariners are urged to use caution when navigating the area during this period.
