SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development requests a temporary deviation from the published regulation for the Bayou Tigre (LA 330) bridge (5 feet vertical clearance when closed at mean high water) across Bayou Tigre as required by 33 CFR 117.5: Except as otherwise authorized or required by this part, drawbridges must open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request or signal to open is given in accordance with this subpart. Currently, according to 33 CFR 117.507, the draw of the Bayou Tigre (LA 330) bridge shall open on signal if at least four hours notice is given. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development requests a deviation to allow the bridge to remain closed to marine traffic from 12:01 a.m. on March 1, 2011 through 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2011. This time period has been coordinated through the rmajette on DSK29S0YB1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:48 Feb 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 waterway users and the responsible Coast Guard Units. There is no alternative route around the project. This deviation will allow the rehabilitation of the bridge to be completed in a timely fashion. This rehabilitation is necessary to extend the bridge life and optimize traffic and boat operations. It will also improve overall traffic, boat and pedestrian safety. The deviation dates and schedule were chosen to minimize significant effect on vessel traffic. Any vessel that does not require an opening of the drawspan may pass at any time; the vertical clearance is five feet mean high water when closed. 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. This deviation may be terminated/cancelled at any time via Broadcast Notice to Mariners. Dated: January 21, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA), who owns and operates this double leaf bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to facilitate the repairs by replacing the existing solenoid brakes on the main motors with thruster brakes. Under the regular operating schedule required by 33 CFR 117.569(b), the bridge opens on signal, except between November 1 and March 31 the draw must open only if at least five hours advance notice is given. The Route 675 Bridge across Pocomoke River, mile 15.6 at Pocomoke City MD, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of three feet above mean high water and five feet above mean low water. Vessels that can transit under the bridge without an opening may do so at any time. Under this temporary deviation, the SHA will maintain the bridge in the closed position to vessels beginning at 7 a.m. on February 14, 2011 until and including 11:59 p.m. on February 26, 2011. Historically, the bridge has had one opening or less during the month of February in the last three years. The Coast Guard will inform users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Pocomoke River; however, the drawbridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency. 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.
