During the summer season (15th June - 31st August) the bridge opens at 08:00hrs and subsequently every two hours until 22:00hrs. Off season the bridge opens on even hours from 10:00hrs till 20:00hrs.
Closed height is around 7m.
Caution is advised in the approaches when entering Mar Menor as depths vary. Stick to the marked channel which should provide a minimum of 4m depth, although this seems optimistic in some places.

A review is silly for an opening bridge, but there you go. Some information from May 30, 2019 - the channel has a sharp turn to the south on the seaward side of the bridge. We measured 8 feet of water near the bend, about two hours after high tide. The rest of the channel is 12 feet and deeper. The bridge is very slow to operate - it takes a full three minutes from starting opening to full open. When the bridge begins opening, don't rush up to pass through or you will be trying to hold station in a very narrow channel waiting to be able to pass.
