SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OC Tri Running Sports, on behalf of Maryland Transportation Authority, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations of the US 50 Bridge across Isle Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD. The closure has been requested to ensure the safety of the increased volume of runners and spectators that will be participating in the 10th annual ‘‘Island 2 Island’’ Half Marathon on April 26, 2014. The event is expected to bring in over 4,000 runners and 6,000 spectators. The OC Tri Sports is extending the course to 13.1 miles to accommodate the request of the community. Under this temporary deviation, the Route 50 Bridge will remain in the closed position to vessels, from 8 a.m. through 10:30 a.m. Information provided by our Coast Guard Station Ocean City reveals that, in the past, vessel traffic for that time of year is very limited with most vessels being small enough to pass without a bridge lift. The US 50 Bridge, over Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay, mile 0.5, at Ocean City, MD has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 13 feet above mean high water. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at any time and are advised to proceed with caution. The Atlantic Ocean is the alternate route for vessels with mast heights greater than 13 feet transiting this section of Isle of Wight (Sinepuxent) Bay. At all other times during the effected period, the bridge will operate as outlined at 33 CFR 117.559. The Coast Guard will inform waterway users 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 impacts caused by the temporary deviation. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 n1 * 4.00 n2 * 7 8 Dated: July 3, 2013. Waverly W.

The Burlington County Bridge Commission, who owns and operates this bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to facilitate the resurfacing of the bridge roadway. The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge (Route 73) at mile 107.2, across the Delaware River, between PA and NJ, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 53 feet above mean high water (MHW). This clearance will be reduced during the resurfacing by approximately three feet, to 50 feet above MHW. Under the current operating schedule set out in 33 CFR 117.5 and 117.716(b): The regulation requires that the drawbridge must open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request or signal to open is given, and that the opening not be delayed more than five minutes. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be closed-to-navigation for resurfacing repairs, which will restrict the operation of the draw span from 9 p.m. on August 16, 2013 until 9 p.m. August 30, 2013. Vessels that can pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at all times and are advised to proceed with caution. Emergency openings cannot be provided. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Delaware River. The Coast Guard has coordinated this with the Delaware Pilots, and will inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the closure period for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. Waterway traffic consists of freighters, recreational boats, tugs, and barges. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation.

Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridge will be maintained in the closed to navigation position from noon to 11:59 p.m. on August 5, 2013; the bridge will operate under normal operating schedule at all other times. The drawbridge normally opens on demand with several small commercial and recreational vessels transiting a week. Emergency openings cannot be provided.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Burlington County Bridge Commission, who 
owns and operates this bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary 
deviation from the current operating regulations to facilitate the 
resurfacing of the bridge roadway.
    The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge (Route 73) at mile 107.2, across the 
Delaware River, between PA and NJ, has a vertical clearance in the 
closed position of 53 feet above mean high water (MHW). This clearance 
will be reduced during the resurfacing by approximately three feet, to 
50 feet above MHW.
    Under the current operating schedule set out in 33 CFR 117.5 and 
117.716(b): The regulation requires that the drawbridge must open 
promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request or signal 
to open is given, and that the opening not be delayed more than five 
minutes.
    Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will be closed-to-
navigation for resurfacing repairs, which will restrict the operation 
of the draw span from 9 p.m. on August 16, 2013 until 9 p.m. August 30, 
2013.
    Vessels that can pass under the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at all times and are advised to proceed with caution. Emergency 
openings cannot be provided. There are no alternate routes for vessels 
transiting this section of the Delaware River.
    The Coast Guard has coordinated this with the Delaware Pilots, and 
will inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast 
Notices to Mariners of the closure period for the bridge so that 
vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the 
temporary deviation. Waterway traffic consists of freighters, 
recreational boats, tugs, and barges.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
