About


Introduction:

Appearing almost as the gateway to Lake Boca Raton, and Boca Raton itself, the Palmetto Park Bascule Bridge crosses the Intracoastal Waterway at Mile Marker 1047.5 with a 20-foot closed vertical clearance and 91 feet of horizontal clearance at the center span. The bridge operates on a restricted schedule, opening only on the hour and half-hour.

Navigating the Bridge:

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.
