Hey Marc,
If your talking about the Brooks bridge I believe it is 50' as marked on the charts. It does have a gage going both directions. There has been work on-going for quite soe time now that has reduced the clearance by 1-2 feet. The contractor has chain link fencing strung under the bridge to catch debris. The CG announces the low clearance on vhf 22A several times a day. Either way 50' or 48', it's too close for comfort for me. I have slipped under after very carefully eye balling the gage but I don't need that kind of stress

It's my happy pill
