BALTIMORE — The biggest temporary ship route from the Port of Baltimore is temporarily closed.

Unified Command shut down the 35-foot-deep channel Monday morning.

The Army Corps of Engineers will take the time to remove remaining wreckage from the Key Bridge collapse.

Officials are targeting May 10 for when the DALI ship will be removed.

When this happens, a 45-foot deep limited access channel will open, allowing commercially essential vessels to pass between 8pm and 7am.

The permanent 700-foot channel, for all cargo ships, is expected to reopen by the end of May.
