Murrow) Bridge, the western shore of Lake Washington, and the east/ west line drawn tangent to Bailey Peninsula and along the shoreline of Mercer Island. The regulated area has been divided into two zones. The zones are separated by a line perpendicular from the I–90 Bridge to the northwest corner of the East log boom and a line extending from the southeast corner of the East log boom to the southeast corner of the hydroplane race course and then to the northerly tip of Ohlers Island in Andrews Bay. The western zone is designated Zone I, the eastern zone, Zone II. (Refer to NOAA Chart 18447). The Coast Guard will maintain a patrol consisting of Coast Guard vessels, assisted by Coast Guard Auxiliary vessels, in Zone II. The Coast Guard patrol of this area is under the direction of the Coast Guard Patrol Commander (the ‘‘Patrol Commander’’). The Patrol Commander is empowered to control the movement of vessels on the racecourse and in the adjoining waters during the periods this regulation is in effect. The Patrol Commander may be assisted by other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. Only vessels authorized by the Patrol Commander may be allowed to enter Zone I during the hours this regulation is in effect. Vessels in the vicinity of Zone I shall maneuver and anchor as directed by the Patrol Commander. During the times in which the regulation is in effect, the following rules shall apply: (1) Swimming, wading, or otherwise entering the water in Zone I by any person is prohibited while hydroplane boats are on the racecourse. At other times in Zone I, any person entering the water from the shoreline shall remain west of the swim line, denoted by buoys, and any person entering the water from the log boom shall remain within ten (10) feet of the log boom. (2) Any person swimming or otherwise entering the water in Zone II shall remain within ten (10) feet of a vessel. (3) Rafting to a log boom will be limited to groups of three vessels. (4) Up to six (6) vessels may raft together in Zone II if none of the vessels are secured to a log boom. Only vessels authorized by the Patrol Commander, other law enforcement agencies or event sponsors shall be permitted to tow other watercraft or inflatable devices. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Jul 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 (5) Vessels proceeding in either Zone I or Zone II during the hours this regulation is in effect shall do so only at speeds which will create minimum wake, seven (07) miles per hour or less. This maximum speed may be reduced at the discretion of the Patrol Commander. (6) Upon completion of the daily racing activities, all vessels leaving either Zone I or Zone II shall proceed at speeds of seven (07) miles per hour or less. The maximum speed may be reduced at the discretion of the Patrol Commander. (7) A succession of sharp, short signals by whistle or horn from vessels patrolling the areas under the direction of the Patrol Commander shall serve as signal to stop. Vessels signaled shall stop and shall comply with the orders of the patrol vessel; failure to do so may result in expulsion from the area, citation for failure to comply, or both. The Captain of the Port may be assisted by other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in enforcing this regulation.

Notice of temporary deviation from regulation; modification. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has modified a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs Seattle Department of Transportation’s (SDOT) Fremont Bridge, across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 2.6, at Seattle, WA. The modified deviation is necessary to accommodate heavy pedestrian and cycling traffic across the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 bridge during the ‘Fun Ride’ event and Lake Union 10K Run event. This modified deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position and need not open to maritime traffic. DATES: This deviation is effective from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on August 14, 2016. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, [USCG–2016–0635] is available at http://www.regulations.gov. Type the docket number in the ‘‘SEARCH’’ box and click ‘‘SEARCH.’’ Click on Open Docket Folder on the line associated with this deviation. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Mr. Steven Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District; telephone 206–220–7282, email d13-pfd13bridges@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 15, 2016, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Lake Washington Ship Canal, Seattle, WA’’ in the Federal Register (81 FR 45971). This document was necessary for Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) to temporarily deviate from the operating schedule for the Fremont Bridge, mile 2.6, crossing the Lake Washington Ship Canal at Seattle, WA. This modification adds an additional closure hour on August 14, 2016 for these events. The deviation is necessary to accommodate heavy pedestrian and cycling traffic across the bridge during the ‘Fun Ride’ event and Lake Union 10K Run event. To facilitate these events, the double bascule draw of the bridge will not open for vessel traffic during the effective date and times. The Fremont Bridge provides a vertical clearance of 14 feet (31 feet of vertical clearance for the center 36 horizontal feet) in the close-to-navigation position. The clearance is referenced to the mean water elevation of Lake Washington. The normal operating schedule for the Fremont Bridge is found at 33 CFR 117.1051. Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship Canal ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. No early Sunday morning bridge opening requests have been received during August for the Fremont Bridge in the last five years. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies, 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 E:\FR\FM\01AUR1.SGM 01AUR1
