Army efforts underway to clear Baltimore Bridge derbis

In Baltimore Harbor, a coordinated operation involving Defense Department resources, state and federal agencies, and private sector entities commenced on Saturday to tackle the wreckage from the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse. Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh highlighted the collaborative effort, led by the U.S. Coast Guard in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Navy, and other key organizations. Demolition experts started cutting through the bridge’s remains, with significant support from Naval Sea Systems Command, which provided heavy-lift barges for debris removal. A temporary alternate channel for essential vessels is being established to facilitate the reopening of the Port of Baltimore, marking a crucial step in the city’s recovery and infrastructure restoration efforts.–News Desk
