An engineering firm, on behalf of North Carolina Department of Transportation, will be performing maintenance on the SR 1184 (Atlantic Beach Bridge) Bridge, over the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW), Bogue Sound, at mile 206.7, between Morehead City, NC and Atlantic Beach, NC. The maintenance, which began October 2018, will continue to be conducted from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Monday-Saturday; through November 30, 2020. A crane barge, material barge, several tugs, several work vessels and platforms, and a snooper truck will be located in and around the vicinity of the bridge. During work hours, the snooper truck will be located in and around the navigational span of the bridge performing concrete repairs through November 30, 2020.

During work hours, the crane barge, material barge, several tugs, several work vessels and platforms will be located within the navigation span performing work on the fender system through March 31, 2020. The snooper truck will extend below low steel of the bridge approximately ten feet, reducing the vertical clearance in the navigation span to approximately 55 feet above mean high water. Vessels that require the snooper truck to clear the navigation span to safely navigate through the bridge should notify the work foreman no less than 30 minutes prior to navigating through the bridge. The tugs, barges, and work vessels and platforms will reduce the horizontal clearance in the navigation span to approximately 38 feet.

Vessels that require the tugs, barges, and work vessels and platforms to clear the navigation span to safely navigate through the bridge should notify the work foreman no less than one hour prior to navigating through the bridge. Work vessels may be reached on VHF-FM channel 13. The project foreman may be reached at (571) 287-9269 or (703) 231-8589. Mariners should use extreme caution navigating through the area. Chart 11547
