Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Broad Creek, Cedar Creek, and Nanticoke River, DE
The Coast Guard is changing the drawbridge operation regulations of four Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) bridges: the Poplar Street Bridge, at mile 8.2, and the U.S. 13A Bridge, at mile 8.2, both across Broad Creek in Laurel, DE; the SR 36 Bridge, at mile 0.5, over Cedar Creek in Cedar Beach; and SR 13 Bridge, at mile 39.6, across Nanticoke River in Seaford, DE. This final rule allows the bridges to open on signal if advance notice is given at different times from 4 to 48 hours. This change will eliminate the continual attendance of draw tender services during the non-peak boating periods while still providing for the reasonable needs of navigation.
Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Darby Creek, PA
The Coast Guard is proposing to change the operating regulations for the Consolidated Rail Corporation (CONRAIL) Railroad Bridge, at mile 0.3, across Darby Creek in Essington, Pennsylvania. The proposal would allow the bridge to be left in the open-to-navigation position from April 1 through October 31 of every year. The bridge would only close for the passage of trains and to perform periodic maintenance. From November 1 to March 31, the bridge would open on signal, if at least 24 hours notice is given by calling (856) 231-7088 or (856) 662-8201.
