Ben Franklin Bridge air gap reporting/vessel orders (per Pilots` Association):
The Pilots’ Association is requiring all vessels calling on ports above the Ben Franklin Bridge to provide air draft and deep draft seventy-two (72) hours prior to arrival and sailing. When giving the arrival air draft and deep draft, please also provide the departure air draft and deep draft as well. This should help reduce delays due to the 48-hour window required by Skanska to raise the scaffolding.
This will be in effect for the next four (4) years while the Ben Franklin Bridge project is under rehab.
