I have not found the current to be a big problem either way - go fast and down the middle - but waiting for the bridge is easier fighting it than backing, and traffic may be an issue that weekend. Alternatively, if you have to wait, just turn the boat so you are facing up-stream.
There is some local stuff on my blog, if you are interested.
