Located between the Southeast 15th Street and Atlantic Avenue Bascule Bridges in Delray Beach, FL, the George Bush Boulevard Bascule Bridge crosses the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) at Mile 1038.7 and opens on demand. Boaters will find a nine-foot closed vertical clearance and 80 feet of horizontal space at the center span.
Traffic can be heavy here, especially on weekends, so be sure to follow all the rules of the road to avoid possible collisions (or heated verbal exchanges). 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.)
