Baltimore Port Reopening Timeline Set; Divers Battle Murky Waters

As crews begin to remove containers from the cargo ship and the remains of the I-695/Francis Scott Key Bridge the ship hit, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has released a timeline for cleaning up the underwater wreckage and reopening the Port of Baltimore.

According to the corps, an estimated 50,000 tons of steel and concrete are lying underwater – some of it sunken 4 to 5 feet in the muddy river bottom – equal to about 3,800 fully loaded dump trucks. Some of the debris has rested on top of the cargo ship Dali, where the crew has remained stuck since the bridge collapse March 26.
