SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The City of San Francisco Public Works Department has requested a temporary change to the operation of the Third Street Drawbridge, mile 0.0, over China Basin, at San Francisco, CA. The drawbridge navigation span provides 7 feet vertical clearance above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. The draw opens on signal if at least one hour notice is given as required by 33 CFR 117.149. Navigation on the waterway is recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on January 23 & 24, 2014; from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on January 25, 2014; and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on January 26, 2014 to allow the public to cross the bridge during events of the San Francisco Boat Show at AT&T Park. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. The drawspan can be operated upon one hour advance notice for emergencies requiring the passage of waterway traffic. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies upon one hour advance notice and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 3495 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.

This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: January 7, 2014. D.H. Sulouff, District Bridge Chief, Eleventh Coast Guard District.

The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.721. On the day of the event, the normal operating schedule for the Grassy Sound Channel Bridge (Ocean Drive) is open on signal from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a two hours advance notice at all other times. Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridge will be allowed to remain in the closed to navigation position from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, 2014 to accommodate ‘‘The Wild Half’’ half marathon. The bridge will operate under its normal operating schedule at all other times.

The Grassy Sound Channel Bridge (Ocean Drive) across the Grassy Sound has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 15 feet above mean high water. Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime and are advised to proceed with caution. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. The New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway is an alternate route for vessels transiting this area and vessels may pass before and after the closure. The Coast Guard will also inform additional waterway users 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 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.

Notice of change in deviation from drawbridge regulation. AGENCY: ACTION: On December 2, 2013, the Coast Guard issued a temporary deviation, lasting approximately 10 weeks, from the operating schedule that governs the Illinois Central Railroad Drawbridge across the Upper Mississippi River, mile 579.9, at Dubuque, Iowa. This temporary deviation allows the bridge to open on signal if at least 24 hours advance notice is given. It is necessary to allow the bridge owner time to perform preventive maintenance that is essential to the continued safe operation of the drawbridge. Maintenance is scheduled in the winter and when there is less impact on navigation; instead of scheduling work in the summer, when river traffic increases. We are modifying that temporary deviation to allow for two three-day periods during the deviation when the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position. DATES: The temporary deviation published in the Federal Register of December 2, 2013, (78 FR 72022) remains in effect; however, from 8 a.m., January 20, 2014 to 8 a.m., January 23, 2014 and 8 a.m. February 3, 2014, to 8 a.m., February 6, 2014, the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position.

The temporary deviation published in the Federal Register on December 2, 2013 (78 FR 72022). The Chicago, Central & Pacific Railroad further requested, to support preventative maintenance on the bridge, to leave the bridge in the closed-tonavigation position for 6 days from 8 a.m., January 20, 2014 to 8 a.m., January 23, 2014 and 8 a.m., February 3, 2014 to 8 a.m., February 6, 2014. The Illinois Central Railroad Drawbridge regularly operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, which states the general requirement that drawbridges shall open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request to open is given in accordance with the subpart. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Upper Mississippi River. Winter conditions on the Upper Mississippi River coupled with the closure of Army Corps of Engineer’s Lock No. 18 (Mile 410.5, UMR) and Lock No. 22 (Mile 301.2, UMR) until 11:00 a.m., March 4, 2014 will preclude any significant navigation demands for the drawspan opening. The Illinois Central Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation position, provides a vertical clearance of 19.9 feet above normal pool. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received. 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: January 9, 2013. Eric A. Washburn, Bridge Administrator, Western Rivers.
