End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The Louisville & Nashville Drawbridge provides a vertical clearance of 46.4 feet above normal pool in the closed-to-navigation position. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreation watercraft. During normal river stages most vessels are able to pass beneath the closed span. In order to repair the bent shaft and install new lift rails the bridge must be kept inoperative and in the closed-to-navigation position. This deviation has been coordinated with waterway users who do not object.

This deviation allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation from 7 a.m., August 13, 2001, to 5 p.m., August 24, 2001. The drawbridge normally opens on signal.
