- Thursday, August 13th and Friday, August 14th – Northumberland Bridge (C-10) in Northumberland
Channel width may be reduced, and slight delays may occur due to a vessel mounted manlift and safety boat moving below each bridge being inspected. Inspectors may be contacted on Marine Channel 13.
Boaters should reduce speed, stop all forward motion and proceed at a "No Wake" speed after receiving clearance to pass.
