Does anyone know the clearance in the center of the span? The Coast Pilot doesn''t list the new bridge but other sources show it is 55'' above MHW. Where would I confirm whether that''s at the center or side of the span?

According to the official website, the bridge is 55 ft. in the closed position. I have to believe that is the highest point and, therefore, is the center of the span. To check it out, see www.dot.state.fl.us/structures/botm/17thstreet.17thstreet.htm

Hope that helps.

As far as I know the span has a tender and it opens every 15 minutes I think it is.
Unless they have torn the old span down that should be no problem. They have Maxie boats J boats you name it that have to get up the river so not a problem.
