About


Introduction:

Located on the Miami River just west of the Dolphin Expressway, the Northwest 17th Avenue Bascule Bridge has a 17-foot closed vertical clearance with 71 feet of horizontal clearance at the center span. The bridge operates on a restricted schedule (as do all Miami River drawbridges) and does not open from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and 4:30 to 6 p.m., except weekends and federal holidays, year-round.

Navigating the Bridge:

This area of the Miami River is packed with lots of marinas, marine service facilities and residential dockage, so be on the lookout for traffic departing and entering the channel.

Depending on schedule, 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.)

Local Notices to Mariners:

Local Notices to Mariners are available online from the U.S. Coast Guard.
