FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Figure Eight Swing Bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 20 feet, above mean high water (MHW). Also, the vertical clearance in this location is limited to 85 feet, above MHW, by the overhead power line. The Figure Eight Homeowners Association (the bridge owner) has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.821(a)(3) to close the drawbridge to navigation to facilitate sandblasting, cleaning and painting of the bridge superstructure. To facilitate this operation, the Figure Eight Swing Bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position each day beginning November 1, 2007, until January 31, 2008, from 6:30 p.m. to 6 a.m., from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, commercial vessel openings will be provided at night if at least three hours notice is given by calling (910) 686– 0635 or via marine radio on Channel 13. At all other times, the drawbridge will operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.821(a)(3). In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

The environmental impact that this temporary deviation will have is minimal because of the drawbridge being closed to vessels to perform routine repair and maintenance will not result in a change in functional use, or an impact on a historically significant element or setting.
