span. The bridge span removal phase of the project is scheduled to end on
March 13th at 6:00 p.m. All shipping interests and Port related
industries are asked to make and implement contingency plans for this 3-

channel closure periods to stage equipment in preparation for the span
removal.

removal period, i.e. channel closure, is scheduled to take place between
6:00 am March 18, 2008 and 6:00 pm March 20, 2008.
