After 6:15 PM, the bridge will open on-demand from
marine traffic by calling the bridge keeper's office on marine channel 13.
Motorists may seek alternate routes during bridge
closures by monitoring the electronic signs (yellow diamond) situated before
all approaches to the bridge. Sign locations: I-195 East & West, Route 18
North & South, Route 6 East & West.
The schedule and duration of openings will vary
depending on weather conditions, harbor congestion and vessel size. By law,
marine traffic has priority over vehicular traffic.
