Knapps Narrows - bridge
 
Does anyone know how often the bridge opens in Knapps Narrows and the procedure for getting under?
Thanks

The bridge lifts on demand. Hail on VHF 13. The bridge tender logs vessel name, type and direction of travel.

"... the drawbridge, the busiest in the country... In 2009, it was raised 10,276 times, nearly double the number of No. 2, Seattle’s Freemont Bridge." Chesapeake Life Magazine
