The BNSF Railway Company has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule of the swing span railroad bridge across Boeuf Bayou, mile 10.2, in Amelia, St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. The deviation was requested for the purpose of removal and reinstallation of the east end reduction gear box, motor shaft, and also to perform an alignment. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, the bridge currently opens on signal for the passage of vessels. This deviation allows the swing span of the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 7 a.m. through 2 p.m. on September 18, 2014. At mean high water, the bridge provides 6.6′ of vertical clearance in the closed-tonavigation position. However, the bridge will be able to open in the event of an emergency. Notices will be published in the Eighth Coast Guard District Local Notice to Mariners and will be broadcast via the Coast Guard Broadcast Notice to Mariners System. Navigation at the site of the bridge consists mainly of tows with barges and some recreational pleasure craft. Due to prior experience, as well as coordination with waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. An alternate route is available by using the GIWW, Morgan City to Port Allen Alternate Route. 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 27, 2014. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator, Eighth Coast Guard District.
