The Montlake Bridge in the closed position provides 30 feet of vertical clearance throughout the navigation channel, and 46 feet of vertical clearance throughout the center 60 feet of the bridge; vertical clearance references to the Mean Water Level of Lake Washington. When half the span is open, single leaf, 46 feet of vertical clearance will be reduced throughout the center to 30 feet of the bridge. To facilitate this event, the north half of the bridge span will open with at least a one hour advance notice provided to the bridge operator from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. From 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., the Montlake Bridge span will remain in the closedto-navigation position, or full closure. The deviation period is from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on September 24, 2016 (north single leaf opening if a one hour notice is given); from 6 p.m. on September 24, 2016 until 6 a.m. on September 25, 2016 (span remain in the closed-to-navigation position); from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on September 25, 2016 (north single leaf opening if a one hour notice is given); from 6 p.m. on September 25, 2016 until 6 a.m. on September 26, 2016 (span remain in the closed-to-navigation position). The normal operating schedule for the Montlake Bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1051(e). Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship Canal ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed-tonavigation position may do so at any time. The bridge will be able to open for emergency vessels in route to a call when an hour notice is given to the bridge operator, and a single leaf opening will be provided. The Lake Washington Ship Canal has no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. 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 designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: August 25, 2016. Steven M. Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District.
