Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulation. AGENCY: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Cape May County (Ocean Drive/CR619) Bridge across the Great Channel, mile 0.7, between Stone Harbor and Nummy Island, NJ. This deviation is necessary to avoid bridge failure and perform emergency bridge repairs. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position. DATES: This deviation is effective without actual notice from November 10, 2016 through 4 p.m. on December 2, 2016. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from November 7, 2016 at 9 a.m., until November 10, 2016.

Pitts, Bridge Administration Branch Fifth District, Coast Guard, telephone 757– 398–6222, email Hal.R.Pitts@uscg.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The County of Cape May, NJ, that owns and operates the Cape May County (Ocean Drive/CR619) Bridge, across the Great Channel, mile 0.7, between Stone Harbor and Nummy Island, NJ, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations to avoid bridge failure and perform emergency repairs to the bridge, due to mechanical failure of the bascule span motor break, machinery brakes, and span lock mechanisms. The bridge is a bascule draw bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 11 feet above mean high water. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.720. Under this temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position until 4 p.m. on December 2, 2016. The Great Channel is used by a variety of vessels including small public vessels, commercial vessels, and recreational vessels. The Coast Guard has carefully considered the nature and volume of vessel traffic on the waterway in publishing this temporary deviation. Vessels able to safely pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and Grassy Sound Channel (Ocean Drive/CR619) Bridge, across Grassy Sound Channel, mile 1.0, at North Wildwood, NJ, can be used as an alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: November 7, 2016. Hal R. Pitts, Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.
