SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Washington State Department of Transportation has requested that the draw span of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge (State Route 520 across Lake Washington) remain closed to vessel traffic to facilitate safe passage of participants of the Seafair Airshow practice and event. Interstate 90 will be closed to road traffic during this time, which would divert road traffic onto the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. The closure of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge will further help minimize road traffic congestion resulting from the closure of Interstate 90. The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge provides three navigational openings for vessel passage, the movable floating span, subject to this closure, and two fixed navigational openings; one on the east end of the bridge and one on the west end. The fixed navigational opening on the east end of the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 150 feet and a vertical clearance of 57 feet at mean high water. The opening on the west end of the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 170 feet and a vertical clearance of 44 feet at mean high water. Vessels that are able to safely pass through the fixed navigational openings are allowed to do so during this closure period. Under normal conditions, during this time frame, the bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1049(a) which states the bridge shall open on signal if at least two hours notice is given. This deviation period is from 9:30 a.m. on August 1, 2013 to 3:30 p.m. August 4, 2013. The deviation allows the floating draw span of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge on Lake Washington to remain in the closed position and need not open for maritime traffic from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on August 1, 2013; 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on August 2, 2013; 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on August 3, 2013; and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on August 4, 2013. The bridge shall operate in accordance to 33 CFR 117.1049(a) at all other times. Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Mariners will be notified and kept informed of the bridge’s operational status via the Coast Guard Notice to Mariners publication and Broadcast Notice to Mariners as PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 appropriate. The draw span will be required to open, if needed, for vessels engaged in emergency response operations during this closure period. 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: July 24, 2013. Daryl R. Peloquin, Acting Bridge Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Washington State Department of 
Transportation has requested that the draw span of the Evergreen Point 
Floating Bridge (State Route 520 across Lake Washington) remain closed 
to vessel traffic to facilitate safe passage of participants of the 
Seafair Airshow practice and event. Interstate 90 will be closed to 
road traffic during this time, which would divert road traffic onto the 
Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. The closure of the Evergreen Point 
Floating Bridge will further help minimize road traffic congestion 
resulting from the closure of Interstate 90. The Evergreen Point 
Floating Bridge provides three navigational openings for vessel 
passage, the movable floating span, subject to this closure, and two 
fixed navigational openings; one on the east end of the bridge and one 
on the west end. The fixed navigational opening on the east end of the 
bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 150 feet and a vertical 
clearance of 57 feet at mean high water. The opening on the west end of 
the bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 170 feet and a vertical 
clearance of 44 feet at mean high water. Vessels that are able to 
safely pass through the fixed navigational openings are allowed to do 
so during this closure period. Under normal conditions, during this 
time frame, the bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1049(a) 
which states the bridge shall open on signal if at least two hours 
notice is given. This deviation period is from 9:30 a.m. on August 1, 
2013 to 3:30 p.m. August 4, 2013. The deviation allows the floating 
draw span of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge on Lake Washington to
