Published Jan. 18, 2013

There is a scheduled closure of St. Lucie Canal South Fork at the Indian Street Bridge construction zone between Stuart and Palm City in Martin County, Fla.

There will be a daily waterway closure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Feb. 18 through March 4, 2013. The waterway will be closed in both directions during these hours.  Mariners should plan their transit of this area accordingly and operate vessels with caution in the area due to potential for floating debris, increased traffic due to the operation, and large equipment working in and along the waterway.
