DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY The Marine Parkway Bridge, mile 3.0, across the Rockaway Inlet, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 55 feet at mean high water and 59 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.795(a). The waterway is transited by commercial barge traffic of various sizes. The bridge owner, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to replace span guide rollers, counterweight guide shoes and trunnion journal at the bridge. Under this temporary deviation, the Marine Parkway Bridge shall remain in the closed position from 7 a.m. on October 17, 2016 to 5 p.m. October 28, 2016. Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways through our Local Notice and Broadcast to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operations can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The Coast Guard notified various companies of the commercial oil and barge vessels and they have no objections to 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 period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
