ICW FL Bridge and Lock info

This has probably been covered but I couldn't find it. Where can I find the current schedule for the bridges and locks in FL? Specifically thinking about Port Canaveral and the associated barge canal.

The specific barge canal bridge is not part of the ICW but opens as follows:
Long Description:
The drawbridge is closed from 6:30am to 8:00am and 3:30pm to 5:15pm on weekdays (except holidays). Three hours advance notice is required for bridge openings from 10:00pm to 5:59am. Daytime phone number 321-783-3759; after 10:00pm phone number 321-213-2694. This bridge provides access from the south to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and the Kennedy Space Center. It is one of three bridges in the area that are affected by space shuttle launches as follows: (1) Restraints on bridge openings for boat traffic begin three hours before launch. The bridges may be opened for five minutes at the following points in the launch countdown: T-180 minutes, T-150 minutes, T-120 minutes, T-90 minutes and T-65 minutes. Adding 20 minutes to these times and subtracting that amount from the launch time will result in an approximate time of openings. (2) Bridges will remain closed to boat traffic until 90 minutes after liftoff (T+90). They may then open for five minutes at T+90, T+120 minutes and T+150 minutes. Bridge operations will return to normal three hours after launch (T+180 minutes).

For ALL ICW bridge openings see:
