SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Multnomah County has requested to operate the Morrison Bascule Bridge with single leaf openings with two hours advance notice. Single leaf openings are required to facilitate major maintenance activity and deck rehabilitation on the bridge. The Morrison Bridge crosses the Willamette River at mile 12.8. The Morrison Bridge is charted on NOAA Chart 18526 with a vertical clearance of 69 ft above Columbia River Datum Mean Lower Low Water in the closed position. Under normal operations the bridge operates under 33 CFR 117.897 which requires a one hour notice for openings between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays and two hour notice for openings at all other times. This current deviation states the Morrison Bridge is allowed to operate with single leaf openings. The bridge will promptly open a single leaf when at least two hours of advanced notice is given. This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. on December 1, 2011 through 6 p.m. on May 27, 2012. This stretch of the Willamette River experiences moderate maritime traffic volumes SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 76297 including vessels ranging from small recreational craft to commercial tug and tow. During this maintenance period a debris containment system will be attached to the inoperable bascule leaf and will reduce the vertical clearance under the inoperable leaf up to 8 ft. Vessels which do not require a bridge opening may continue to transit beneath the bridge during this deviation period. An assist tug will be provided for larger vessels when maneuvering is constrained by the limited opening. 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: November 23, 2011. Randall D. Overton, Bridge Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Union Pacific Railroad Company has requested a temporary deviation from the published regulation for the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge across the Old Brazos River in 33 CFR 117.975 which states: The draw of the Union Pacific railroad bridge, mile 4.4 at Freeport, shall be maintained in the fully open position, except for the crossing of trains or for maintenance. The requested deviation will allow the bridge to remain closed to marine traffic from 6 a.m. December 16 through 6 p.m. December 19, 2011. The clearance in the closed-to-navigation position is 10.67 feet above mean sea level (MSL). This deviation will allow the lift span of the bridge to remain in the closed-tonavigation position in order for the cables to be replaced and re-tensioned. This work is necessary due to an ongoing bridge modification project, authorized by Coast Guard Bridge Permit Amendment P (7a–09–8) dated SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 September 14, 2010. The project involves the replacement of the old swing span with the current vertical lift span. Vessel traffic at the bridge site consists of commercial fishing vessels, commercial dive boats and recreational boats. There are no alternate routes. During the closure times, the process for tensioning the cables will allow the bridge to be able to open for emergencies and occasionally for the passage of vessels once the new cables are in place and being tensioned. Current waterway users above the bridge are aware of the closure and have not objected to this time period. Vessels that do not require an opening can pass at any time. 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 periods. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: November 21, 2011. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator.
