Honker Cut Swing Bridge connects King Island to the Empire Tract along Eightmile Road. Marine facilities and a ramp are located just to the south of the bridge.
Use NOAA Chart 18661.
Characteristics: Honker Cut Swing Bridge has a closed vertical clearance of seven feet with a horizontal clearance of 75 feet at the center span. Currents during periods of high water can be tricky in the area, and there is heavy shoaling toward the middle of the cut. Eight- to ten-foot depths prevail elsewhere in the cut.
12 hours advance notice is required to have a bridgetender open the bridge. Contact District 11 USCG or 209-468-3074 to make advance preparations.
