SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The City of Chesapeake, that owns and operates the Gilmerton (US13/460) Bridge, across the South Branch of the Elizabeth River, mile 5.8, on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, at Chesapeake, VA, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to avoid bridge failure and perform Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:04 Sep 15, 2016 Jkt 238001 emergency repairs to the bridge due to failure of operating mechanism components, requiring non-standard manual operation of the bridge until repair is completed. The bridge is a vertical lift draw bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 36 feet above mean high water. The vertical clearance of the bridge in the open-to-navigation position of 136 feet above mean high water will be reduced to approximately 110 feet above mean high water from 9 p.m. on September 16, 2016, through 5 a.m. on September 19, 2016. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.997(c). Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position, except for scheduled openings at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday; and 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The scheduled openings at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, September 17, 2016, and September 18, 2016; and emergency openings from 9 p.m. on September 16, 2016, through 5 a.m. on September 19, 2016, will provide a reduced vertical clearance of approximately 110 feet above mean high water. The South Branch of the Elizabeth River is used by a variety of vessels including U.S. government and public vessels, commercial vessels, tug and barge traffic, and recreational vessels. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. On Saturday and Sunday, September 17, 2016, and September 18, 2016, vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position should contact the bridge tender to ensure safe passage through the bridge. There is no immediate alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. The bridge will open on signal for emergency vessels, if at least one hour notice is given. 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 vessel operators can arrange their transit 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 period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Dated: September 13, 2016. Hal R.

Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position with the crane barge positioned alongside the bridge may do so at anytime. Vessels planning to transit through the bridge in the closed position with the crane barge positioned alongside the bridge shall contact the bridge tender to request information concerning the position of the crane barge to ensure safe passage. Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position that require the crane barge to clear the main navigation span of the bridge, may do so at noon, daily, if at least two hours advance notice is given to the bridge tender. The bridge will open on signal for vessels that require an opening of the bridge and are unable to transit through the bridge during non-closure times due to draft and/or daylight restrictions, if notice is provided by 5 p.m. the day before the required bridge opening. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Virginia Department of Transportation, 
that owns and operates the James River Bridge (US17), across the James 
River, mile 5.0, at Isle of Wight and Newport News, VA, has requested a 
temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to perform 
repairs to the aerial electrical cable connecting the north tower to 
the south tower. The bridge is a vertical lift draw bridge and has a 
vertical clearance in the closed position of 60 feet above mean high 
water.
    The current operating schedule is open on signal as set out in 33 
CFR 117.5. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in 
the closed-to-

navigation position from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. from September 19, 2016, 
through September 30, 2016; with alternate dates from October 1, 2016, 
through October 16, 2016. During this temporary deviation, the bridge 
will operate per 33 CFR 117.5 from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
    The James River is used by a variety of vessels including deep 
draft ocean-going vessels, U. S. government vessels, small commercial 
vessels, recreational vessels and tug and barge traffic. The Coast 
Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users.
    During closure periods a 55-foot by 150-foot crane barge will be 
positioned alongside the bridge at various locations within the main 
navigation span of the bridge with the centerline of the barge 
perpendicular to the bridge. Vessels able to safely pass through the 
bridge in the closed position with the crane barge positioned alongside 
the bridge may do so at anytime. Vessels planning to transit through 
the bridge in the closed position with the crane barge positioned 
alongside the bridge shall contact the bridge tender to request 
information concerning the position of the crane barge to ensure safe 
passage.
    Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed 
position that require the crane barge to clear the main navigation span 
of the bridge, may do so at noon, daily, if at least two hours advance 
notice is given to the bridge tender. The bridge will open on signal 
for vessels that require an opening of the bridge and are unable to 
transit through the bridge during non-closure times due to draft and/or 
daylight restrictions, if notice is provided by 5 p.m. the day before 
the required bridge opening. 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 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 vessel operators can arrange 
their transit 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 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
