MSIB (22-17) SC-41 Bridge Demolition
The Coast Guard is establishing two safety zones on the waters of the Wando River in Charleston, South Carolina. Both safety zones are in conjunction with demolition efforts of the old SC-41 swing bridge which consists of two separate evolutions; 1) Truss Pick and 2) Demolition of underwater structure. The established safety zones will occur on separate days between August 4, 2017 and August 30, 2017. Each safety zone will be enforced for approximately six hours and will cover all navigable waters within 500 yards of the bridge, including vessels, and machinery being used for the demolition. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative.
