NOAA installs new bridge clearance system on Delaware Memorial Bridge

ADVERTISEMENT

NOAA recently installed a new sensor on the Delaware Memorial Bridge that helps ships navigate safely underneath.

The Delaware Memorial Bridge connects Delaware and New Jersey. This new air gap system is part of the Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) and measures the distance between the water’s surface and a predetermined reference point on the bridge.

NOAA has 18 of these bridge clearance systems across its network of 33 PORTS.
