Response #3:
Originally it was anticipated that the bridge will be non-operational for vessel traffic from 06/13/2018 to 07/18/2018. Since the initial estimate it has been discovered that the capacity of the existing backup lift system is subject to an unforeseen performance degradation. For your situational awareness, this development will likely result a negative operational impact on the capacity of the bridge to accommodate vessel traffic. If there is a loss of power for whatever reason opening/reopening the bridge during a loss of power may not be possible.
