SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BNSF Railway Company has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule of the BNSF Swing Bridge across the Mermentau River, mile 68.0, in Mermentau, Acadia and Jefferson Davis Parishes, Louisiana. The closure is necessary to allow for repairs to the bridge. Presently, the bridge opens on signal for the passage of vessels. This deviation will allow the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. on Monday, June 29, 2009 until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, 2009. Navigation on the waterway consists of tugs with tows, fishing vessels and recreational craft. Due to prior experience and coordination with waterway users it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. The vertical clearance of the swing bridge in the closed-to-navigation position is 10.0 feet and unlimited in the open-to-navigation position. No alternate routes are available. As this work is proposed during hurricane season, if any storms are in the Gulf of Mexico, the work may be postponed and rescheduled. 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. Dated: May 28, 2009. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator. [FR Doc.
