SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 56609 The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company requested a temporary deviation for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad Bridge, mile 88.8, at Beardstown, Illinois across the Illinois Waterway. It has a vertical clearance of 19.6 feet above normal pool in the closed position. The BNSF Railroad Bridge currently operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.393(a) which requires that the bridge be maintained in the open-to-navigation position; closing only when a train needs to transit the bridge. The deviation period is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., October 15 and October 22, 2013 when the draw span will remain in the closed-to-navigation position. During these times the new conley rail components will be installed. The draw span will not be returned to its fully open position until installation is completed after each closure. For the duration of the repair, work vessels will not be allowed to pass through the bridge while the installation of the conley rail components is in progress. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass this section of the Illinois Waterway. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: August 30, 2013. Eric A. Washburn, Bridge Administrator, Western Rivers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Basis and Purpose

    On June 11, 2013, we published a temporary deviation entitled 
``Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Reynolds Channel, Lawrence, NY'', 
in the Federal Register (78 FR 34893). The temporary deviation 
concerned was for the Atlantic Beach Bridge, across Reynolds Channel, 
mile 0.4, at Lawrence, New York. The owner of the bridge, Nassau County 
Bridge Authority, requested a temporary deviation for 176 days to 
facilitate electrical and structural rehabilitation at the bridge. This 
deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 
117.35.

B. Cancellation

    Under the temporary deviation published on June 11, 2013, (78 FR 
34893) the draw of the Atlantic Beach Bridge at mile 0.4, across 
Reynolds Channel was required to operate as follows:
    (1) From June 9, 2013 through September 30, 2013, Monday through 
Friday, the draw may operate a single span on signal, every two hours, 
on the even hour, between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. From 8 p.m. through 6 a.m. 
the draw may operate a single span on signal. On weekends and holidays 
from Friday at 8 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m. the bridge shall open 
both spans every hour on the hour.
    (2) From October 1, 2013 through December 1, 2013, the bridge shall 
operate a single span on signal at 6 a.m., 12 p.m., 4 p.m., and 8 p.m. 
and at any time between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. The draw shall open both 
spans at all times for commercial vessel traffic after at least a 48 
hour advance notice is given by calling the number posted at the 
bridge.
    The bridge owner recently advised the Coast Guard that six, five 
hour, bridge closures would be necessary in order to facilitate the 
completion of the electrical and structural rehabilitation at the 
bridge. These closures cannot occur under the current temporary 
deviation.
    As a result, the Coast Guard is cancelling the temporary deviation 
published on June 11, 2013 in the Federal Register (78 FR 34893) and 
will publish a new temporary deviation that will include the six, five 
hour, bridge closures.
