Baltimore port channel set to fully reopen by end of May

Baltimore port channel set to fully reopen by end of May - Universal Logistics Trade Alerts - April 5, 2024

Toronto, April 5, 2024

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) expects to open a limited access channel to the Port of Baltimore by the end of April, with the permanent channel reopened by the end of May, according to a press release on Thursday, April 4, 2024. The government agency aims to open the limited access channel — measuring 280 feet wide and 35 feet deep — by the end of April, which will support one-way traffic for barge container service and roll-on/roll-off vessels. This will aid in the transport of automobiles and farm equipment in and out of the port.

Army Corps engineers aim to reopen the permanent 700-foot-wide by 50-feet-deep Fort McHenry Channel by the end of May. The channel, which the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed into, will help restore port access to normal capacity. The timeline is subject to change due to adverse weather conditions and changes in the “complexity of the wreckage,” Lt. Gen. Scott A. Spellmon, USACE commanding general, said in the press release.
