SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 26, 2017, the Coast Guard 
published a temporary deviation entitled ``Drawbridge Operation 
Regulation; Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, Chesapeake, VA'' in 
the Federal Register (82 FR 44733). That document resulted from 
Virginia State Department of Transportation's request for a temporary 
deviation, occurring from 7 a.m. on October 2, 2017, through 11 p.m. on 
November 22, 2017, from the normal operation of the drawbridge to 
accommodate routine maintenance to bridge. Subsequent to the approval 
of that request, Virginia State Department of Transportation requested 
a modification to the temporary deviation, starting from 11:01 p.m. on 
November 22, 2017, through 11 p.m. on December 3, 2017, to allow more 
time to remove and replace the center locks and install new electrical 
wiring and lubrication piping. Therefore, through this document, the 
Coast Guard modifies the dates of the previously approved temporary 
deviation to allow the I-64 (High Rise) Bridge across the Atlantic 
Intracoastal Waterway, Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, mile 
7.1, at Chesapeake, VA, to remain in the closed-to-navigation position 
from Midnight on November 29, 2017, through 11 p.m. on December 3, 
2017. At all other times, the bridge will open on signal if at least 24 
hours notice is given. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 65 feet 
above mean high water in the closed position. The current operating 
schedule is set out in 33 CFR 117.997(e).
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so if at least 15 minutes notice is given. The bridge will not be 
able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route 
for vessels unable to pass through the bridge in the closed position. 
The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our 
Local and Broadcast Notice 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 this temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of this effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
