Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-20
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing two safety zones on the navigable waters of Newtown Creek, NY.

The second is from approximately 370 yards south (upstream) of the Kosciuszko Bridge at mile 2.1 and Newtown Creek's confluence with the East River at mile 0.0 during transport of the existing center span to an offsite location. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters during the lowering and securing of the existing bridge's center span onto two barges within the Federal navigation channel and during the barge's outbound transit through Newtown Creek to the East River, tentatively scheduled on June 21-22, 2017.
