Baltimore District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reported that Key Bridge Response 2024 Unified Command salvors use the crane barge Chesapeake 1000 to move a large piece of supporting steel from the collapsed Francis Scott Key Bridge on Sunday, April 14 in Dundalk.

The Chesapeake 1000 is the largest floating crane on the Eastern Seaboard, and removing these large pieces will help open a Limited Access Channel that allows one-way ship traffic to the Port of Baltimore.

Debris and wreckage removal is on-going in support of a top priority to safely and efficiently open the Fort McHenry channel.
