It’s been less than two months since the containership Dali lost control as was leaving Baltimore Harbor at night, hitting the Francis Scott Key Bridge and destroying it, causing the deaths of bridge workers, and closing this key US harbor to vessel traffic.

Since then a unified command operation of skilled agencies and experts have been working to clear navigation channels so ships can resume calling on the port.

This week they made huge progress and were able to move the ship out of the way and open the deep draft ship channel.

We’ll talk about what it took to get there.
