Document Number: E6-20706
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-07
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is revising the drawbridge operations for the Rob Roy Drawbridge across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 67.4 at Pine Bluff, Arkansas, the Baring Cross Railroad Drawbridge across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 119.6 at Little Rock, Arkansas, and the Van Buren Railroad Drawbridge across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 300.8 at Van Buren, Arkansas, to reflect the actual procedures currently being followed. In addition, the following three bridges will be removed from 33 CFR 117.123 as they are locked in the open-to- navigation position and are no longer considered to be drawbridges: Missouri Pacific Railroad Drawbridge (Benzal Railroad Drawbridge) across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 7.6 at Benzal, Arkansas, the Rock Island Railroad Drawbridge across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 118.2 at Little Rock, Arkansas, and the Junction Railroad Drawbridge across the Arkansas Waterway at Mile 118.7 at Little Rock, Arkansas. Section 117.139 is being revised as paragraph (a) is no longer needed since the Missouri Pacific Railroad Drawbridge (Benzal Railroad Drawbridge) is locked in the open-to-navigation position.
