The U.S. Coast Guard has advised that the navigation channel will be blocked under the I-30 Bridge, NM 118.5, from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, Monday through Saturday, 8-19 Nov.  The blockage is due to steel erection for the new bridge.  If possible, when work conditions permit, the contractor may move their crane barge to allow navigation traffic to pass.  Mariners can contact the onsite work boat M/V Bill O’ Donley on VHF-FM channels 13 or 16 or via phone at (501) 940-7050 for details, prior to arrival to the area.
