SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 On December 13, 2010, the owner of the bridge, New Jersey Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to facilitate bridge painting operations. On January 27, 2011, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation (76 FR 4819) from the operation regulations. The temporary deviation allowed the bridge owner to require a two hour advance notice for bridge openings and several closures of short duration to facilitate bridge painting. As a result of severe winter weather in 2011, the bridge painting project fell behind schedule; therefore, the bridge painting work will not be completed by July 31, 2011, when the first temporary deviation will expire. We received a request for a second temporary deviation from the bridge owner on June 13, 2011, requesting authorization to allow the bridge to remain in the closed position from August 1, 2011 through September 30, 2011, to facilitate completion of the bridge painting work. We were not able to grant a temporary deviation for the additional 60 days requested because that would exceed the maximum of 180 days allowable for temporary deviations from the operation regulations. Therefore, under this temporary deviation the bridge may remain in the closed position for 58 days from August 1, 2011 through September 27, 2011, to facilitate completion of the bridge painting. Vessels able to pass under the closed draw may do so at any time. The waterway users were advised of the second 58 day temporary deviation necessary to complete the bridge painting. No objections were received. 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. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: July 27, 2011. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    The Route 1 & 9 Bridge has a vertical clearance of 40 feet at mean 
high water, and 45 feet at mean low water in the closed position. The 
existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 
117.739(b). The waterway is predominantly used by commercial operators.
    On December 13, 2010, the owner of the bridge, New Jersey 
Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to 
facilitate bridge painting operations.
    On January 27, 2011, the Coast Guard published a temporary 
deviation (76 FR 4819) from the operation regulations. The temporary 
deviation allowed the bridge owner to require a two hour advance notice 
for bridge openings and several closures of short duration to 
facilitate bridge painting.
    As a result of severe winter weather in 2011, the bridge painting 
project fell behind schedule; therefore, the bridge painting work will 
not be completed by July 31, 2011, when the first temporary deviation 
will expire.
    We received a request for a second temporary deviation from the 
bridge owner on June 13, 2011, requesting authorization to allow the 
bridge to remain in the closed position from August 1, 2011 through 
September 30, 2011, to facilitate completion of the bridge painting 
work. We were not able to grant a temporary deviation for the 
additional 60 days requested because that would exceed the maximum of 
180 days allowable for temporary deviations from the operation 
regulations.
    Therefore, under this temporary deviation the bridge may remain in 
the closed position for 58 days from August 1, 2011 through September 
27, 2011, to facilitate completion of the bridge painting. Vessels able 
to pass under the closed draw may do so at any time.
    The waterway users were advised of the second 58 day temporary 
deviation necessary to complete the bridge painting. No objections were 
received.
    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. This deviation from the operating regulations is 
authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

    Dated: July 27, 2011.
