Delaware Memorial Bridge Will Close Tonight

The heavy lift vessel the ZHEN Hua 25 is scheduled to pass under the Delaware Memorial bridge tonight. The cranes’ tops are 188 feet and 3 inches from the water surface. To be able to pass under the bridge this has to be done at a dead low tide.

I imagine it has to be perfect weather conditions, last thing you want is a wind or storm surge. Dead calm water would be best. The closing will occur at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday and 12:15 a.m. Wednesday.

The bridge will close for the return trip on April 2nd at 5:15 am. The Zhen Hua 25 will have another crane aboard. That could mess up a few early morning commuters, just in time for the day after April fools day.

Fish On!
