The bridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.609. The waterway is transited by seasonal recreational vessels of various sizes that normally are in winter storage November through April. Massachusetts Department of Transportation requested a temporary deviation to facilitate electrical repairs and structural rehabilitation at the bridge. Under this temporary deviation the Alford Street (Rt-99) Bridge may remain in the closed position from November 1, 2013 through April 29, 2014. The bridge is being rehabilitated by Massachusetts Department of Transportation for the bridge owner, the City of Boston. This is the third winter closure for the same time period. No objections were received during the past two winter closure periods. The recreational vessels that normally transit the Alford Street (Rt-99) Bridge are in winter storage during the time period this deviation will be in effect. We contacted the upstream facilities this fall regarding this proposed 2013– 2014 winter closure and no objections were received. There are no alternate routes for vessel traffic; however, vessels that can pass under the closed draw during this closure may do so at any time. The bridge may be opened in the event of an emergency. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterway through our Local and/or 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 bridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period.
