The Coast Guard is revising the current regulated navigation area (RNA) for the navigable waters of the Hudson River surrounding the Tappan Zee Bridge. First, the Coast Guard is establishing a new safety zone surrounding commercial mooring buoys installed for the ongoing Tappan Zee Bridge replacement project. The safety zone will prohibit all vessel traffic that could pose an imminent hazard to persons and vessels that will be transiting to and from the bridge site and maneuvering in close quarters between other construction vessels and large mooring buoys. Second, the Coast Guard is expanding the size of the current RNA and designating two areas within the RNA, the Eastern RNA and the Western RNA, based upon their respective locations in relation to the new safety zone. This rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life in the RNA and safety zone during the construction of the New NY Bridge and demolition of the existing Tappan Zee Bridge.

The U.S. Navy has requested the Coast Guard to establish a regulated navigation area (RNA) on the navigable waters of the Piscataqua River surrounding Bridge 1 between Kittery, ME, and Seavey Island, ME.

This rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life on the navigable waters during bridge structural repair operations.

Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, make available the final Environmental Assessment (EA), Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), Response to Comments, and the final Oil and Gas Industry Conservation Plan Associated With Issuance of Endangered Species Act Section 10(a)(1)(B) Permits for the American Burying Beetle in Oklahoma (ICP). We also invite the public to comment on an application from Canyon Creek Energy Operating, for incidental take of the federally listed American burying beetle resulting from activities associated with the construction, operation, maintenance, repair, and decommissioning of oil and gas pipelines and related well field activities in Oklahoma, under the ICP. The final ICP, final EA, FONSI, and Response to Comments are available for review; however, we are not accepting comments on these final, approved documents. We are only accepting comments on the applicant's incidental take application.
