Re: Scheduled Blynman Bridge Closure

The following is a quote from the U.S. Coast Guard Monthly Edition of the Local Notice to Mariners No. 40/01;

"The SR 127 highway bridge, mile 0.0, across the Annisquam River/Blynman Canal will be closed for replacement of the submarine power supply cable. During these repairs the bridge will remain in the closed position eight hours a day during daylight hours at slack tide from November 5, 2001 through November 9, 2001. Additionally, from 7 am on November 12, 2001 through midnight on November 16, 2001, the bridge will be closed at all times."

There will be a 30' x 90' barge in the canal during the operations scheduled 11/5/01 through 11 /9/01.

The U.S. Coast Guard, Gloucester Police Department and Gloucester Harbormaster will have boats stationed in the Annisquam River during the schedule closings in the event of an emergency.

If you have any further questions please contact the Gloucester Harbormaster at the above phone number or j.caulkett@ci.gloucester.ma.us.
