FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On November 25, 2016, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Northeast Cape Fear River, Wilmington, NC’’ in the Federal Register (81 FR 85160). Under that temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed-to-navigation position and open on signal during daylight hours, if at least 3 hours notice is given. The CSX Corporation, owner and operator of the CSX Hilton Railroad Bridge across the Northeast Cape Fear River, mile 1.5, in Wilmington, NC, has requested a modified temporary deviation from the current operating regulations due to an electrical casualty to the submarine cable and electrical components caused by Hurricane Matthew. The bridge is limited to manual operation, which requires personnel to manually operate components of the bridge in locations where additional safety measures are required, limiting the bridge to daylight operations. This modified temporary deviation, extending the date until 6 p.m. on December 30, 2016, is necessary for completion of repairs to the bridge. The bridge is a bascule draw bridge and has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 4 feet above mean high water. The current operating schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.829(b). Under this modified temporary deviation, the bridge will remain in the closed-tonavigation position and open on signal during daylight hours, if at least 3 hours notice is given. Communications with the bridge tender may be interrupted during drawbridge operations. Notice may be given via 904–381–5793 (CSX Engineering Help Desk), if unable to contact the bridge tender via normal established methods. The Northeast Cape Fear River is used by a variety of vessels including small commercial fishing vessels, recreational vessels and tugs and barges. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with waterway users. srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:50 Dec 16, 2016 Jkt 241001 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 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. Dated: December 13, 2016. Hal R. Pitts, Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.
