To ensure the safety of life and property on the navigable waters during demolition of the Broadway Bridge, the existing U.S. Coast Guard safety zone on the Arkansas River from mile marker 118.6 to mile marker 119.6 has been extended to December 01.
Entry into this area will be prohibited during certain demolition operations. A representative of the Captain of the Port Memphis will be on-scene to stop traffic during these times. All vessels transiting the navigation channel will be required to maintain slowest speed for safe navigation to minimize wake. Temporary marker buoys marked “no-wake” will be placed in the river.
Vessels may contact Coast Guard Sector Lower Mississippi River on VHF-FM Channel 16 for further information.
Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to the Little Rock District Office, at (501) 324-5739 or, or you may email CESWL-OP-OM@usace.army.mil.
