Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with RULES 13520 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 46 / Monday, March 9, 2020 / Rules and Regulations Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, the draws need not be opened. (3) The following bridges are remotely operated, are required to operate a radiotelephone, and shall open as noted in this section; The South First Street Bridge, mile 1.78. (4) No commercial vessel over 50 tons shall be held between any bridge at any time and must be passed as soon as possible. (5) From November 2nd through April 15th, all drawbridges over the Kinnickinnic River will open on signal if a 12-hour advance notice is provided. The Canadian Pacific Railroad Bridge at Mile 1.74 over the Burnham Canal, and the Sixteenth Street Bridge, mile 2.14, over the Menomonee River are closed by regulation and do not need to open for the passage of vessels. During non-special event weekdays the owners of all affected bridges will provide records showing the dates and times of bridge openings and the type of vessels the bridge opened for. The city of Milwaukee will also provide information on the vehicle congestion caused or improved by the temporary deviation by providing the number of vehicles waiting for the bridge to close after a vessel passes. Because we took into consideration the comments from the ANPRM, vehicle counts, and past three years of vehicle counts, we believe the test deviation will have a limited impact on vessels. The city of Milwaukee held public discussions about the potential rule change through public works meetings conducted throughout the summer of 2018. Prior to asking for our review, this office reached out to several commercial vessels which operate on the affected waterways prior to the release of the ANPRM. These actions were aimed at developing a test deviation that took all pertinent comments and concerns under consideration. Vessels that can safely pass under the bridge without an opening may do so at any time. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways of the change in operating schedule for the bridges through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners. 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. II. Public Participation and Request for Comments We view public participation as essential to effective rulemaking, and will consider all comments and material VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:34 Mar 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 received during the comment period.
