Mariners are advised that the rehabilitation of the State Route 80 (E-25) bridge that was announced in a July 24th Notice to Mariners to commence on Tuesday, July 26th but was delayed will commence today. Work will be staged, starting with scaffolding hanging below the southern half of the bridge and marine traffic utilizing the northern half of the channel.
