Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Willamette River, Portland, OR, 56655 [2014-22591]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 184 / Tuesday, September 23, 2014 / Rules and Regulations San Joaquin County Department of Public Works has requested a temporary change to the operation of the Bacon Island Road Drawbridge, mile 8.6, over Middle River, between Bacon Island and Lower Jones Tract, CA. The drawbridge navigation span provides approximately 8 feet vertical clearance above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.171(a), the draw opens on signal from May 15 through September 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. From September 16 through May 14, the draw opens on signal from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Thursday through Monday. At all other times, the draw shall open on signal if at least 12 hours notice is given to the San Joaquin County Department of Public Works at Stockton. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 9 a.m. on September 8, 2014 to 5 p.m. on October 23, 2014, due to structural maintenance work in replacing the approach deck slabs. The work will require loss of power to the bridge electrical systems. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies. Old River can be used as an alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. The Coast Guard will inform waterway users of this temporary deviation via our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners, to minimize resulting navigational impacts. 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: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Dated: September 4, 2014. D.H.
