A major shipping route to Baltimore’s port has reopened after the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed on March 26, blocking most ships and causing significant disruptions. The channel was cleared of 50,000 tons of debris after a container ship lost power and struck the bridge, resulting in worker fatalities. For weeks, the port was largely closed, with gradual reopenings. On May 20, the cargo ship Dali, trapped in the wreckage, was refloated and returned to port, allowing the channel to fully reopen to two-way traffic. The port’s closure had a substantial economic impact, affecting many workers and small businesses. Local and state authorities, with 500 specialists and various equipment, worked swiftly to restore operations. Colonel Estee Pinchasin of the Army Corps of Engineers commended the teamwork and acknowledged the victims’ families. Investigations by the National Transportation Safety Board and FBI are ongoing, with plans to rebuild the bridge by 2028.
