The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the Wantagh State Parkway Bridge, across Goose Creek, at mile 16.1, at Jones Beach, New York.

This deviation will allow the bridge to open on signal if at least a half-hour notice is given to the New York State Department of Transportation, except that, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, and Federal holidays, the draw shall be opened every hour on the half-hour after at least a half-hour notice is given.
