Zhen Hua 25 to Navigate Under Delaware Memorial Bridge April 2

Zhen Hua25

By Press Release

NEW CASTLE, DEL. – At approximately 5 a.m. April 2, the Zhen Hua 25, a heavy lift vessel which transported and unloaded two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes at the Port of Philadelphia, will navigate south under the spans of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.  
The vessel is destined for Wilmington, N.C. where the third crane aboard 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 north to Philadelphia.  
This temporary closure may take place sometime between 4:45 a.m. and 5:15 a.m. early April 2.  
Traffic delays are expected and motorists should plan accordingly.
The distance from the water level to the top of the cranes aboard the vessel is 188 feet, 3 inches. Due to tides levels and the Delaware Memorial Bridge’s measured clearances, the vessel must travel under the spans during the period of low tide.
Both spans of the Delaware Memorial Bridge will reopen to traffic once the vessel clears the structures.
