Background

    Complaints have been received alleging that the bridge is 
unreasonably obstructive to navigation. Information available to the 
Coast Guard indicates numerous bridge allisions have occurred between 
1995 and 2007. The navigation opening of the bridge is 150 feet and 
causes significant delays to commercial water traffic. Mariners transit 
the bridge under a non-navigation span when possible. During periods of 
high water mariners often double trip the bridge, which adds many hours 
to the bridge transit. Based on the comments received at the public 
meeting, the bridge may be found to be unreasonably obstructive to 
navigation. Such a finding may require relocating and increasing the 
horizontal clearance of the railroad bridge to meet the reasonable 
needs of navigation.

Procedural

    The hearing is open to the public. Attendees at the meeting, who 
wish to present testimony and have not previously made a request to do 
so, will follow those having submitted a request, as time permits. If a 
large number of persons wish to speak, the presiding officer may limit 
the time allotted to each speaker. Conversely, the public meeting may 
end early if all present wishing to speak have done so.
