SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Suffolk County Department of Public Works, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary deviation in order to facilitate reconstruction of the bascule leaves. The Beach Lane Bridge across the Quantuck Canal, mile 1.1 at Westhampton Beach, New York is a double-leaf bascule bridge offering mariners a vertical clearance of 13.9 feet at mean high water and 16.2 feet at mean low water in the closed position. Horizontal clearance is 50.3 feet, but utilization of a work barge placed underneath one of the bascule leaves will reduce horizontal clearance to 25 feet. The existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR117.799(d). This temporary deviation will allow the Beach Lane Bridge to open only one of the two bascule spans for bridge openings from 12:01 a.m. on April 17, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2017. Dual lift span operations will be permitted, provided 48 hours of advance notice is furnished to the owner of the bridge. The majority of vessels requiring bridge openings are sailing vessels and yachts transiting the waterway. Discussion with the proprietor of the Modern Yachts Marina located in the vicinity of the bridge confirms typical recreational traffic will continue to be able to proceed through the navigation opening of the bridge during one-leaf operations. Small scale tug/barge combinations occasionally transit the Quantuck Canal, but such commercial craft are generally limited in size. Mariners concur that the requirement to PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 22281 provide the bridge owner 48 hours of advance notice for dual lift span operations will not impede overall operations. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so at all times. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies and there is an alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge when 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 transits to minimize any impact caused by this temporary deviation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Suffolk County Department of Public 
Works, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary deviation in 
order to facilitate reconstruction of the bascule leaves.
    The Beach Lane Bridge across the Quantuck Canal, mile 1.1 at 
Westhampton Beach, New York is a double-leaf bascule bridge offering 
mariners a vertical clearance of 13.9 feet at mean high water and 16.2 
feet at mean low water in the closed position. Horizontal clearance is 
50.3 feet, but utilization of a work barge placed underneath one of the 
bascule leaves will reduce horizontal clearance to 25 feet. The 
existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 
CFR117.799(d).
    This temporary deviation will allow the Beach Lane Bridge to open 
only one of the two bascule spans for bridge openings from 12:01 a.m. 
on April 17, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2017. Dual lift span 
operations will be permitted, provided 48 hours of advance notice is 
furnished to the owner of the bridge.
    The majority of vessels requiring bridge openings are sailing 
vessels and yachts transiting the waterway. Discussion with the 
proprietor of the Modern Yachts Marina located in the vicinity of the 
bridge confirms typical recreational traffic will continue to be able 
to proceed through the navigation opening of the bridge during one-leaf 
operations. Small scale tug/barge combinations occasionally transit the 
Quantuck Canal, but such commercial craft are generally limited in 
size. Mariners concur that the requirement to provide the bridge owner 
48 hours of advance notice for dual lift span operations will not 
impede overall operations.
    Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so 
at all times. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies and there 
is an alternate route for vessels unable to pass through the bridge 
when 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 
transits to minimize any impact caused by this 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.
