Coast Guard April 20, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Townsend Gut, Booth Bay and Southport, ME
Document Number: E6-5909
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-04-20
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to change the drawbridge operation regulation governing the operation of the Southport (SR27) Bridge, across Townsend Gut, at mile 0.7, between Boothbay Harbor and Southport, Maine. This proposed rule would change the regulation to require the Southport (SR27) Bridge to operate on a fixed opening schedule between April 29 and September 30, each year. This rule is expected to help relieve vehicular traffic delays during the summertime tourism season while continuing to meet both the current and anticipated needs of navigation.
