SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Burlington County Bridge Commission, who owns and operates this vertical-lift type drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.5 and 117.716(b) to facilitate the adjustment of the operational lift cables. The Burlington-Bristol Bridge on Route 413, at mile 117.8, across the Delaware River, between Burlington NJ and Bristol PA, has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 62 feet above mean high water. Under the regular operating schedule the bridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5 and the opening of a bridge may not be delayed more than five minutes for a highway bridge, after the signal to open is given as required by 33 CFR 117.716(b). Under this temporary deviation, the Burlington-Bristol Bridge will be closed to navigation and unable to open on signal each day from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. on October 30, 2012 and November 1, 2012. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a drawbridge opening may do so at all times. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Delaware River. There are approximately four to six vessels per week from four facilities whose vertical clearance surpasses the closed bridge position, requiring an opening of the draw span. The Coast Guard has coordinated this replacement work with the Mariners’ Advisory Committee for the Bay & River Delaware, and will inform the other 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. The bridge will not be able to open in an emergency during lift cable tension adjustments. 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: September 25, 2012. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.
