Big River Bridge Clearances

Hi all,

I am trying to determine bridge clearances on a few of the big rivers.

Ohio - from Cinci to the Mississippi
Mississippi - From the Ohio to the Tenn Tom and
Tenn Tom to the gulf.

Specifically, would a mast height of 57 feet from the water line clear the bridges on the above sections of rivers, or would it be necessary to demast first.

Re: Big River Bridge Clearances

Can't make it down the Tenn-Tom greater than 52 feet +/-. Tennessee River you will be ok, but will have to scrape your antenna at Kenlake during summer pool. There is a railroad bridge that must be raised at New Johnsonville +/- Mile 100 on the Tennessee. You will have to get mast down by Headwaters of the Tenn-Tom until you get to Mobile. Then you can go GICW to Pensacola. East from Pensacola, Navarre has a 49 foot bridge, so it is outside from Pensacola eastward.
