Located on Little Sarasota Bay, tucked behind Siesta Key, the Stickney Point Bascule Bridge is a busy thorofare for vehicle traffic near GIWW Mile Marker 70.

Navigating the Bridge:

Use NOAA Chart 11425.

The bridge has a closed vertical clearance of 18 feet with 90 feet of horizontal clearance in the center span. As with most GIWW locations, the channel shoals abruptly outside of the marked limits, and a slow speed, close eye on the watch approach is recommended. Boat traffic can be heavy here on the weekends and holidays.

Bridge Schedule:

The bridge will open on demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

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.)
