About


Introduction:

The Dodge Island Railroad Bascule Bridge is located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Miami at Mile Marker 1089.4. The bridge has a closed vertical clearance of 22 feet with 90 feet of horizontal clearance in the center span. The bridge is operated from a remote location and closes for approaching rail traffic. The bridge is normally left in the open position otherwise.

Navigating the Bridge:

Use NOAA Chart 11467.

Southbound, the approach to the bridge first crosses under the Dodge Island Bridge, which has a fixed vertical clearance of 66 feet. The channel is shallow on both sides, and deeper-draft boats are advised to keep aimed on the center span of both bridges.

The bridge is normally open, but will close for approaching rail traffic.
