SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The existing Woodrow Wilson Memorial (I– 95) Bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessel of 50 feet at mean high water and 52 feet at mean low water. Coordinators for the construction of the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation for the existing Woodrow Wilson Memorial (I–95) Bridge set out in 33 CFR 117.255(a). The coordinators requested the temporary deviation to close the existing drawbridge to navigation to accommodate the shifting of vehicular traffic on the Outer and Inner Loops of the Capital Beltway/I–95 North. The Outer and Inner Loops of the Capital Beltway/I–95 North will be reduced from three lanes to only one lane between the Route 1 Interchange and the Wilson Bridge. Project traffic engineers anticipate traffic impacts to peak on Saturday afternoon, with 10 to 15 mile backups and delays of 60 to 90 minutes. Maintaining the existing drawbridge in the closed-to-navigation position from 8 p.m. on Friday, June 9, 2006, through 5 a.m. on Monday, June 12, 2006 and from 8 p.m. on Friday, July 14, 2006, through 5 a.m. on Monday, July 17, 2006, will help reduce the impact to vehicular traffic during these phases of new bridge construction. The Coast Guard has informed the known users of the waterway of the closure period for the bridge so that these vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(c), this work will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: April 13, 2006. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Chief, Bridge Administration Branch, Fifth Coast Guard District.
