The drawbridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 70 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. The draw operates as required by 33 CFR 117.5. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 23, 2017, to allow the bridge owner to conduct emergency repairs. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels able to 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 waterway 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 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.

Background, Purpose and Legal Basis When the President of the United States, members of the First Family, or other persons under the protection of the Secret Service are present or expected to be present at Mar-a-Lago, traffic backups have been caused by drawbridge openings in the Palm Beach area. The increase in traffic occurs due to the closure of Southern Boulevard when the President is visiting Mar-aLago. This requires through traffic to use the Flagler Memorial and Royal Park Bridges to cross the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AICW). Due to the increased traffic using the Flagler Memorial and Royal Park bridges when the President is in town, the Mayor of Palm Beach has asked the Coast Guard and the bridge owner, Florida Department of Transportation, to test a change to the operating regulations of those bridges. During this temporary deviation, the Flagler Memorial and Royal Park Bridges will only be required to open once an hour, on the quarter and half hour, respectively, starting at 2:15 p.m. through 5:30 p.m. during the weekdays only. The Flagler memorial Bridge will open at 2:15 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., weekdays, if vessels are requesting an opening.

However it will be allowed to remain closed whenever the presidential motorcade is in transit. At all other times all three bridges will operate per their normal schedules. The current operating regulation is under 33 CFR 117.261 at paragraphs (u), (v), and (w), respectively. This general deviation will have an impact on marine traffic while alleviating some vehicle traffic backups. Tugs with tows are not exempt from this regulation. The Coast Guard will inform waterway users of the schedule changes through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners, so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. Mariners should also listen to local news organizations to determine when the President, members of the First Family, or other persons under the protection of the Secret Service are visiting Mar-a-Largo. 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. The Coast Guard will continue to evaluate the impact to mariners navigating this area during the closure periods and is requesting comments be submitted during the first 60 days of this deviation. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies. II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    When the President of the United States, members of the First 
Family, or other persons under the protection of the Secret Service are 
present or expected to be present at Mar-a-Lago, traffic backups have 
been caused by drawbridge openings in the Palm Beach area. The increase 
in traffic occurs due to the closure of Southern Boulevard when the 
President is visiting Mar-a-Lago. This requires through traffic to use 
the Flagler Memorial and Royal Park Bridges to cross the Atlantic 
Intracoastal Waterway (AICW). Due to the increased traffic using the 
Flagler Memorial and Royal Park bridges when the President is in town, 
the Mayor of Palm Beach has asked the Coast Guard and the bridge owner, 
Florida Department of Transportation, to test a change to the operating 
regulations of those bridges.
    During this temporary deviation, the Flagler Memorial and Royal 
Park Bridges will only be required to open once an hour, on the quarter 
and half hour, respectively, starting at 2:15 p.m. through 5:30 p.m. 
during the weekdays only. The Flagler memorial Bridge will open at 2:15 
p.m., 3:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., weekdays, if vessels are 
requesting an opening. The Royal Park (Middle) Bridge will open at 2:30 
p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., weekdays, if vessels are 
requesting an opening.
    The operating schedule of the Southern Boulevard Bridge, which is 
closest to Mar-a-Lago and also crosses the AICW, will not be affected 
during the aforementioned times. However it will be allowed to remain 
closed whenever the presidential motorcade is in transit. At all other 
times all three bridges will operate per their normal schedules. The 
current operating regulation is under 33 CFR 117.261 at paragraphs (u), 
(v), and (w), respectively.
    This general deviation will have an impact on marine traffic while 
alleviating some vehicle traffic backups. Tugs with tows are not exempt 
from this regulation.
    The Coast Guard will inform waterway users of the schedule changes 
through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners, so that vessel 
operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by 
the temporary deviation. Mariners should also listen to local news 
organizations to determine when the President, members of the First 
Family, or other persons under the protection of the Secret Service are 
visiting Mar-a-Largo.
    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. The Coast Guard will 
continue to evaluate the impact to mariners navigating this area during 
the closure periods and is requesting comments be submitted during the 
first 60 days of this deviation.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies.
