The Atlantic Boulevard Bascule Bridge, at Mile 1056.0 on the Intracoastal Waterway, is approximately two nautical miles south of the Hillsboro Inlet and just north of where the Pompano Canal and Cypress Creek enter the Waterway. The bridge opens on demand.
Keep an eye out for entering boat traffic from the Cypress Creek/Pompano Canal entrance just south of the bridge. Otherwise, navigating the bridge is easy and 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.)
