What about the lifts at the Great Bridge Bridge?

UPDATE: The U.S. Coast Guard has granted the City's request for limited bridge openings at the Great Bridge Bridge. The Great Bridge Bridge will remain closed to waterway traffic (open to road traffic) Monday-Friday, 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. At all other times the bridge will operate as normal. Please note that federal regulations require that the bridge open at any time for red flag vessels so this could still lead to bridge lifts during those periods.
