ACTION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Witt Penn Bridge, across the Hackensack River at mile 3.1 has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 35 feet at mean high water and 40 feet at mean low water. The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.723. The waterway has seasonal recreational vessels, and commercial vessels of various sizes. Most vessels that presently use this waterway can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening. The owner of the bridge, New Jersey Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to facilitate the replacement of the AC drive motors and subsequent testing. Under this temporary deviation the Witt Penn Bridge, mile 3.1, across the Hackensack River may require a twohour advance notice for bridge openings from April 4, 2011 through May 8, 2011. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at all times. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period.
