The Rio Vista Drawbridge, mile 12.8, across the Sacramento River, has a vertical clearance of 18 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, the draw opens on signal. Navigation on the waterway is commercial, search and rescue, law enforcement, and recreational. The drawspan will require a one hour advance notice at one specified period: From 6 p.m. on July 14, 2017 to 4 a.m. on July 15, 2017. A one hour advance notice will give enough time for the contractor to clear away equipment and workers before the drawspan can safely open for transiting vessels. Scaffolding will be installed below the bridge deck from July 1, 2017 through July 15, 2017, reducing the vertical clearance by 4 feet, and will extend from the west tower 48 feet into the navigational channel. This temporary deviation modification has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation modification were raised.

The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so vessel operators can arrange their transits 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 2017, the Coast Guard published 
a temporary deviation entitled ``Drawbridge Operation Regulation; 
Sacramento River, Rio Vista, California'' in the Federal Register (82 
FR 27423). That temporary deviation, from 7 p.m. on June 16, 2017 to 4 
a.m. on July 1, 2017, allows the drawspan to open on one hour advance 
notice at three specified time periods. The bridge owner, California 
Department of Transportation, has requested a modification of the 
currently published deviation to extend from 4 a.m. on July 1, 2017 to

    The Rio Vista Drawbridge, mile 12.8, across the Sacramento River,

specified period: From 6 p.m. on July 14, 2017 to 4 a.m. on July 15, 
2017. A one hour advance notice will give enough time for the 
contractor to clear away equipment and workers before the drawspan can 
safely open for transiting vessels. Scaffolding will be installed below 
the bridge deck from July 1, 2017 through July 15, 2017, reducing the 
vertical clearance by 4 feet, and will extend from the west tower 48 
feet into the navigational channel. This temporary deviation 
modification has been coordinated with the waterway users. No 
objections to the proposed temporary deviation modification were 
raised.

waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the 
change in operating schedule for the bridge so vessel operators can 
arrange their transits 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.
