Cargo Ship That Took Out Baltimore Bridge Now Headed To Virginia

The cargo ship Dali departed from Baltimore for Virginia on Monday, nearly three months after the tragic incident that destroyed the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The 984-foot vessel, accompanied by four tugboats, is under its own power with a crew of 22 and six salvage experts. The U.S. Coast Guard is overseeing its journey, maintaining a 500-yard safety zone. The Dali will first unload roughly 1,500 cargo containers at Virginia International Gateway to reduce draft before proceeding to Norfolk International Terminal for ongoing salvage and repairs. The ship had been immobilized since crashing into a bridge column, causing that collapse that claimed six lives.
