Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Saugus River, Lynn and Revere, MA, 42433 [2012-17577]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 139 / Thursday, July 19, 2012 / Rules and Regulations Basis and Purpose On May 2, 2012, we published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operations: Niantic River, Niantic, CT’’ in the Federal Register (77 FR 25889) for the Amtrak Railroad Bridge, across the Niantic River, mile 0.0, at Niantic, Connecticut. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Cancellation The Coast Guard previously issued a temporary deviation to Amtrak published on May 2, 2012 (77 FR 25889) to allow their bridge to remain in the closed position from 11 p.m. through 6 a.m., Monday through Thursday, beginning May 15, 2012 until August 15, 2012. The temporary deviation was necessary to facilitate completion of machinery installation and lift span work at the new railroad bridge. In May 2012, the contractor building the bridge discovered a minor shift in the bascule pier, causing a misalignment of the new bridge. Until the pier alignment problem is resolved, the work anticipated to be completed during the closures authorized under the May 2, 2012 (77 FR 25889) temporary deviation could not be completed. In order to complete all the remaining work and correct the pier alignment problem a new temporary deviation is required authorizing a 48 hour bridge closure from 9 p.m. July 15 to 9 p.m. July 17, 2012 and a series of overnight closures between July 22 and August 22, 2012. As a result of all the above information it was determined that the temporary deviation published on May 2, 2012 (77 FR 25889) must be cancelled on July 14, 2012. Dated: July 9, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The General Edwards Bridge, across the Saugus River, mile 1.7, between Lynn and Revere, Massachusetts, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 27 feet at mean high water and 36 feet at mean low water. The drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.618(b). The waterway users are recreational vessels of various sizes. During the nonboating season the bridge rarely opens since the recreational vessels that transit this waterway are normally in winter storage. The bridge has opened five times since 2010 during the winter months. The owner of the bridge, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation from the regulations to help facilitate rehabilitation of the electrical and mechanical components that lift the opening spans. Under this temporary deviation the General Edwards Bridge may remain in SUMMARY: Jkt 226001 PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 42433 the closed position from September 4, 2012 through February 27, 2013.
