SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New Jersey Department of Transportation owns and operates this bascule drawbridge and has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.733(f) to facilitate the free movement of 70,000 fans and vehicles during the three-day concert and fireworks display. The US40–322 (Albany Avenue) Bridge, at NJICW mile 70.0 across Inside Thorofare in Atlantic City, NJ has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 10 feet above mean high water. Under normal operating conditions the draw would open on signal, except that: (1)Year-round, from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. and from November 1 through March 31 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. the draw need only open if at least four hours notice is given; and (2)From June 1 through September 30: (i) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., the draw need only open on the hour and half hour; and (ii) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., the draw need not open. Under this temporary deviation, beginning at 8 a.m. on Friday June 24, 2011 and ending at 2 a.m. on Monday June 27, 2011, the Albany Avenue Bridge will open according to the following schedule: The drawbridge will only open on signal at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m., and the bridge will open between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. with four hours advance notice provided. The drawbridge will not open on signal, except as provided in this paragraph. The drawbridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at all times. Vessels with heights greater than 10 feet could use an alternate route. One alternate route is by way of the Atlantic Ocean. The Coast Guard will inform the 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. 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.

except that:
    (1)Year-round, from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. and from November 1 through 
March 31 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. the draw need only open if at least
