Dali successfully refloated and being moved to pier after Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse

After months of being stuck, the ship that collided with a bridge support at the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore in March is finally being moved.

It has been nearly two months since the tragic collapse of the Key Bridge, claiming the lives of six dedicated road workers who were diligently restoring the bridge’s deck.

According to WJLA, crews were anticipating the container ship to be refloated just before 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning, which coincided with high tide. The Associated Press noted that these were the optimal conditions for getting the ship moving again.

Tugboats are currently assisting in the transportation of the ship, covering a distance of 2 1/2 miles back to the terminal. This journey is estimated to last approximately 21 hours.
