SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The New York City Department of 
Transportation, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary

Guard published a modified temporary deviation entitled ``Drawbridge

closed to navigation for a period not to exceed 7 days; the draw would

regulations for another 7 days, after which the cycle would repeat.
    In the interest of expediting work efforts and closing the project

requested that between August 18, 2017 and September 29, 2017 the draw 
of the Hutchinson River Parkway Bridge remain closed to navigation for 
a period not to exceed 14 days; the draw will then open for vessels in

There is no 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.
