Broad River Draw Bridge
Posted August 10, 2012, by Bill Lucas (billy [dot] lucas [at] gmail [dot] com)

...I understand this bridge was re-built in 2004 but where can the "new" vertical height be found???

It's not shown on any chart including latest & greatest NOAA ENC.

This info is difficult to obtain; just curious as to why.

Thanks,

Bill
