NEW CASTLE, Del. At approximately 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 2, the ZHEN HUA 25 will navigate south beneath the spans of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The heavy lift vessel is destined for Wilmington, North Carolina where the third crane aboard the heavy lift vessel will be offloaded at the Port of Wilmington.
As a precaution and to eliminate driver distraction, the Delaware Memorial Bridge, both northbound and southbound, will be temporarily closed to all traffic for a period of approximately 30 minutes while the ship travels south. This temporary closure may take place sometime between 4:45 a.m. and 5:15 a.m. early Tuesday morning. Traffic delays are expected and motorists should plan accordingly.
Both spans of the Delaware Memorial Bridge will reopen to traffic once the ZHEN HUA 25 clears the structures.
