SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The bridge owner, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), is conducting maintenance on the Route 223 swing bridge over Milford Haven Inlet near Hudgins, Virginia.

The deviation period commences at 7 a.m. on October 3, 2013 and goes through 9 p.m. March 31, 2014. During the deviation period, the construction work may require four 24-hour periods where the bridge will be unable to open to navigation. Due to restrictions based on vehicular transportation needs, the 24-hour periods will not be consecutive. Under the regular operating schedule where the bridge opens on signal, the bridge opens up to ten times every day for commercial fishing vessels and Coast Guard vessels at Station Milford Haven. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The vertical clearance of the swing bridge in the closed-to-navigation position is 12 feet at mean high water. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time and are advised to proceed with caution. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies during any of the four 24-hour closure periods. The southern approach to Gywnn’s Island by Sandy Point, VA can be used as an alternate route for vessels able to transit in water depths of two feet. The Coast Guard will use Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners at least seven days in advance of the changes in operating schedule 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 effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: July 29, 2013. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard.
