DATES: The public scoping meetings are currently planned for the following dates, to be held at U.S. Coast Guard Base Boston, 455 Commercial Street, Boston, MA 02109: • March 6, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.; • April 24, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. B. Background The original Chelsea Street Bridge was a bascule-type bridge owned by the City of Boston and constructed in 1939. It spanned the Chelsea River providing a means for vehicles to travel between Chelsea, MA and East Boston, MA. Several petroleum-product transfer facilities are located on the Chelsea River, upstream and downstream of the Chelsea Street Bridge. Transit of tank vessels through the bridge is necessary to access the petroleum facilities upstream of the bridge. The narrow, ninety-six foot horizontal span created a narrow passage through the bridge for larger vessels. Adding to the difficulty is the close proximity of neighboring shore structures and, at times, vessels moored at the Sunoco Logistics facility downstream of the bridge on the East Boston side. These factors led to the establishment of the present safety zone regulation which restricts certain vessel passage through the Chelsea Street Bridge based on vessel dimensional criteria, assist tug support, and daylight restrictions. Since the implementation of the regulations, physical changes have occurred within the confines of the safety zone. A new vertical lift span bridge with a 175 foot vertical clearance and a 175 foot horizontal navigable channel span has been constructed in place of the old Chelsea Street Bridge. The federal navigational channel has been expanded to a width of 175 feet. Six new permanent fixed lighted aids to navigation structures have been installed in the immediate area of the bridge to best mark the new channel. While the current regulations have provided an acceptable level of safety, it PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 6783 may be desirable to amend or disestablish the current regulation in light of the new bridge and navigational channel improvements within the area of the existing safety zone. C. Information requested The Coast Guard is seeking comments pertaining to the existing safety zone in the vicinity of the Chelsea Street Bridge in light of the modified waterway. In particular, comments addressing the need and or relevancy of regulations governing vessel dimensional restrictions, assist tug requirements, and transits between sunset and sunrise are requested. Additionally, the Coast Guard welcomes input and possible solutions regarding any other navigational and waterway safety issue on the Chelsea River that is not currently addressed in the existing safety zone regulation. Dated: January 15, 2013. J.C. O’Connor, III, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Boston.
