The Port of Green Bay is officially closed to ALL watercraft (freighters and pleasure craft) between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. However, Bridge Tenders are authorized to use their discretion to open lift bridges on July 4th as follows:

Mason Street Bridge - may open all day dependent on traffic and pedestrian conditions

Walnut Street Bridge - may open all day dependent on traffic and pedestrian conditions

Main Street Bridge

  1. Midnight (12 a.m.) to 9 a.m. – will open for all watercraft
  2. 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. – will not open for any watercraft
  3. 11 p.m. to midnight (12 a.m.) - will open for all watercraft

Fox River – Walnut Street Bridge to Main Street Bridge

  1. Waterboard Warrior Ski Show from 3 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. - Docking at City Deck during this time is not allowed.
  2. Reminder – No boats are allowed to dock overnight at City Deck. Also, because of the Waterboard Warrior Ski Show, docking adjacent to City Deck will be restricted on July 4th until 4:30 p.m. Docking at City Deck will be allowed from 4:30 p.m. to midnight (12 a.m.).

The City realizes the July 4th holiday brings many boats out on local waters. These restrictions are established for the safety of the “Festival Foods Fire Over the Fox” event. The City thanks boaters for their understanding of this issue.
