Inc., on behalf of Delaware Department of Transportation, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulation of the SR 13 Bridge across the Nanticoke River, mile 39.6, at Seaford, DE. The requested deviation is to accommodate painting and cleaning of the bridge. The vertical clearance of this single-leaf bascule bridge is three feet at mean high water (MHW) in the closed position and unlimited in the open position. During this deviation period, the vertical clearance will be limited to one foot at MHW due to the scaffolding that will be used for the maintenance of the bridge. Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. the bridge is able to open if at least four hours of notice is given and from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. the bridge will be left in the closed-to-navigation position. On Saturdays and Sundays and on July 4, 2011 the bridge will be left in the open position and vessels will be able to pass through at any time. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies if at least four hours of notice is given. There are no alternate routes available to vessels. The current operating schedule for the bridge is set out in 33 CFR 117.243(b). In the months of June and July the regulation requires the bridge to open on signal, except from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., if at least four hours notice is given. Logs from June and July 2010 have shown that most of the openings were on the weekends and on July 4th and all of the openings were between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. This deviation will have no impact for mariners traveling through the bridge on the weekends and on July 4th because the bridge will be left in the open position on these days. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:10 Jun 01, 2011 Jkt 223001 Mariners transiting through the bridge on weekdays should have minimal delay given that the bridge can open for vessels if at least four hours notice is given. The majority of the vessel traffic is recreational boaters. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners so that mariners can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The Coast Guard will also require the bridge owner to post signs on either side of the bridge notifying mariners of the temporary regulation change. 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 23, 2011. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information On April 18, 2011, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone, in the Federal Register (76 FR 21677). We received 0 public submissions commenting on this rule. No public meeting was requested, and none was held. Background and Purpose This rule will add 33 CFR 165.918 Safety Zones; Annual Events requiring safety zones in the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie zone. Many of these events recur in the same location on or about the same date each year. Also, these events pose hazards to the public. Such hazards include obstructions to navigable channels, explosive dangers associated with fireworks, debris falling into the water, and general congestion of waterways. To minimize these and other hazards, this rule will establish twenty safety zones, each related to a specific recurring marine event. Discussion of Comments and Changes The Coast Guard received 0 public submissions commenting on this rule. Discussion of Rule This rule and its associated safety zones are necessary to ensure the safety of vessels and people during each of the annual marine events discussed herein. Although this rule will remain in effect year round, the safety zones will be enforced only immediately before, during, and after each corresponding event. The Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will notify the public when these safety zones will be enforced. In keeping with 33 CFR 165.7(a), the Captain of the Port Sault Sainte Marie will use all appropriate means to notify the affected E:\FR\FM\02JNR1.SGM 02JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Marinis Bros. Inc., on behalf of Delaware 
Department of Transportation, has requested a temporary deviation from 
the current operating regulation of the SR 13 Bridge across the 
Nanticoke River, mile 39.6, at Seaford, DE. The requested deviation is 
to accommodate painting and cleaning of the bridge. The vertical 
clearance of this single-leaf bascule bridge is three feet at mean high 
water (MHW) in the closed position and unlimited in the open position. 
During this deviation period, the vertical clearance will be limited to 
one foot at MHW due to the scaffolding that will be used for the 
maintenance of the bridge. Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 6 
p.m. the bridge is able to open if at least four hours of notice is 
given and from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. the bridge will be left in the closed-
to-navigation position. On Saturdays and Sundays and on July 4, 2011 
the bridge will be left in the open position and vessels will be able 
to pass through at any time. The bridge will be able to open for 
emergencies if at least four hours of notice is given. There are no 
alternate routes available to vessels.
    The current operating schedule for the bridge is set out in 33 CFR 
117.243(b). In the months of June and July the regulation requires the 
bridge to open on signal, except from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., if at least 
four hours notice is given.
    Logs from June and July 2010 have shown that most of the openings 
were on the weekends and on July 4th and all of the openings were 
between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. This deviation will have no 
impact for mariners traveling through the bridge on the weekends and on 
July 4th because the bridge will be left in the open position on these 
days. Mariners transiting through the bridge on weekdays should have 
minimal delay given that the bridge can open for vessels if at least

mariners can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by 
the temporary deviation. The Coast Guard will also require the bridge 
owner to post signs on either side of the bridge notifying mariners of 
the temporary regulation change.
    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.
