C&D Canal, St. George’s Bridge AIR GAP REDUCTION(per USACE): The US Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District will begin work on the
St Georges Bridge (St Georges, DE) over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal
starting on September 4, 2018. This will include an air draft restriction
from the South Pier to half way along the main span. The air draft will be
restricted over the Southern half of the bridge by four (4) feet. The
Northern half of the bridge, including the North half of the main span, will
remain unrestricted. Our Marine Traffic Controllers will help direct traffic
under the Northern half of the bridge to avoid any concerns.
