SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Captree State Parkway Bridge, across the State Boat Channel at mile 30.7, at Captree Island, New York, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 29 feet at mean high water and 30 feet at mean low water. The drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.799(i). The waterway users are recreational vessels of various sizes. The bridge opened 7 times in both June and July, 3 openings in August, and 6 openings in September. During the winter months the bridge rarely opens since the recreational vessels that transit this waterway are normally in winter storage. The owner of the bridge, New York State Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation from the regulations to help facilitate emergency repairs at the bridge as a result of a recent fire at the bridge on October 9, 2011.
