deviation concerned a change from the operating schedule that governs 
the Rock Island Railroad and Highway Drawbridge across the Upper

owner was scheduled to perform preventive maintenance and critical 
repairs that are essential to the continued safe operation of the 
drawbridge. The work was scheduled in the winter, when the impact on 
navigation was minimal, instead of scheduling the work at other times 
in the year, when river traffic is prevalent. The deviation allowed the 
bridge to be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position for 77 
days. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized 
under 33 CFR 117.35.

B. Cancellation

    This deviation is cancelled as of January 22, 2014, due to work
