ICW show stopper in Norfolk

From the Waterway Guide...
Norfolk Southern #7 Railroad Bridge on the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River has been damaged in the closed position and is inoperative until further notice. The charted vertical clearance is 7 feet.

https://www.waterwayguide.com/nav-al...perable-update

A runaway barge hit it.
Anyone stuck on the wrong side?

Ted, more like you need to wait until it is operational before you come through!

From Waterway Guide:

The Norfolk Southern #7 Railroad Bridge on the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River has been damaged and is undergoing repairs. The bridge is unable to open on demand at this time.

There will be periodic bridge openings as repair operations permit throughout the weekend and until fully repaired. Mariners are encouraged to monitor VHF Channel 13 for updates from the Norfolk Southern bridge operator, and may contact the bridge operator on VHF Channel 13 or by calling 757-446-5320 with any questions about potential openings.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, contact United States Coast Guard Sector Virginia Waterways Management Division duty phone at 757-374-3408 or VirginiaWaterways@uscg.mil. For any urgent issues, please contact the Sector Virginia Command Center on VHF-FM Channel 16 or at 757-483-8567.

Thumbs up

Periodic openings is better than nothing. Pretty good for being displaced 6 inches.

Actually, plan B is Oregon inlet. It's definitely not one of my favorites.

Clearly you don't understand who is in charge. You watch, they'll open it for me.
