The East span provides 50 feet of vertical clearance, the West span 
provides 35 feet of vertical clearance and the Main span provides zero 
feet of vertical clearance in the closed-to-navigation position. The 
Main span provides unlimited vertical clearance in the open-to-

Floating Drawbridge across Hood Canal, mile 5.0, to only open half-way 
from 6 a.m. on August 1, 2016 until 7 p.m. on October 15, 2016.
    During the time of the deviation, the drawbridge will not be able

craft. Coordination has been completed with known waterway users, and 
no objections to the deviation have been received.
    Vessels able to pass through the East and West spans may do so at 
anytime. The Main span does not provide passage in the closed-to-
navigation position. The bridge will be able to open half the Main span 
for Navy vessels during emergencies, when requested by the Department 
of the Navy. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the 
waterways through our Local and 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 drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective
