Please be advised, beginning at 6:00 a.m., Tuesday May 5, and continuing weekdays through Friday, May 22, the Gerritsen Inlet navigation channel will be closed. The channel closure is needed to complete the installation of steel girders over the channel. During the closure period (6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), the NYCDOT contractor will have a tug boat and a skiff boat onsite to escort marine traffic through the channel once the barges closing off the channel are repositioned. Mariners can request passage through the channel by contacting the contractor via the VHF maritime mobile band. The navigation channel will re-open at 5:00 p.m. each evening. This operation is being coordinated with the United States Coast Guard (USCG). Completion of this work is contingent on the weather.
If you have are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (347) 702-6430 or via email, SevenBeltBridgesOutreach@gmail.com.
