Mariners are advised that an engineering firm, on behalf of North Carolina Department of Transportation, will be performing maintenance on the SR 904 Bridge across Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW), mile 333.7, between Shallotte, NC and Ocean Isle, NC. The maintenance will be conducted from Sunday night to Friday morning; from June 1, 2021, through May 1, 2022. During these maintenance periods, two work vessels, work floats, and a snooper truck will be located in and around the navigation channel. During work hours, 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. Maintenance personnel, equipment and the vehicle will relocate from the navigable channel, upon request. Work vessels may be reached on VHF- FM channel 13. The project foreman may be reached at (571) 287-9269 or (703) 598-1847. Mariners should notify the work foreman no less than 30 minutes prior to transiting through the bridge. Mariners should use caution navigating through the area. Chart 11534
