In its temporary final rule published on November 9, 2017, the Coast Guard established temporary safety zones near dredging and pipe laying operations, diving operations, and underwater construction operations (82 FR 52005). The DATES section of the rule and the preamble both gave the expiration date of the temporary rule as February 28, 2018. In the regulatory text provided for the Code of Federal Regulations, however, that date was mistakenly given as February 28, 2017. This document corrects the error. Because the temporary final rule uses the correct date in all other instances, and because February 2017 has already passed, the Coast Guard finds it unnecessary to offer prior notice and opportunity for public comment on this correction.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

The rule was made enforceable from November 6, 2017, through February 28, 2018. However, in regulatory text the February date was mistakenly given as February 28, 2017.
