Located at GIWW Mile 126.6, the Reddington Shores Bascule Bridge is the southernmost of two bridges that cross The Narrows near Saint Petersburg.
Use NOAA Chart 11411.
The bridge has a closed vertical clearance of 20 feet with 90 feet of horizontal clearance in the center span. Navigating The Narrows is fairly straightforward, but be sure to closely honor all marks. This part of the GIWW not only has soft, sandy shoals, but rock outcrops as well. Currents are generally mild.
This bridge opens on demand.
The bridge can be opened by horn signal (one long, one short) or by hailing the bridge tender on VHF Channel 09. (All bridges in the state of Florida must be hailed on VHF Channel 09.)
