Boaters take note:
At Swiss Bear’s request in the interest of public safety and to facilitate the free and safe movement of pedestrians during MUMFEST week-end, effective 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. October 12 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. October 13, the Commander of the Fifth Coast Guard District issued a temporary deviation and the draw span will only be allowed to open every two hours on the hour.

Please help us pass the word to your boating friends, the press and area yacht clubs.

Although it may be a bit of an inconvenience, it would be tragic if there was a major accident on the bridge. We appreciate and thank everyone for their cooperation and patience over the two days, be it pedestrians or boaters.
