Barge in New River may hinder marine traffic

ADVERTISEMENT

Nighttime marine traffic on the New River may be affected by barges under the SE 3rd Ave. Bridge in downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Broward County work crews are painting the bridge.

 

Jim Steel, of Jim Steel Towing in Ft. Lauderdale, he said does not expect major navigation problems because the work is ongoing after daytime business hours.

 

Painting will run from 9:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. each day and is expected to be complete by mid-July. The barge in the waterway will be moved upon request by marine radio call to the S.E. 3rd Avenue Bridge tender or by phoning the bridge tender at 954-765-4080.
