Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Jamaica Bay, New York, NY
The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the Beach Channel Railroad Bridge across Jamaica Bay, mile 6.7, at New York, New York. Under this temporary deviation the Beach Channel Railroad Bridge may remain in the closed position on Saturday and Sunday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., on October 13, 14, 20, and 21, 2007. This deviation is necessary to facilitate bridge track repairs.
Security Zones; Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai, HI
The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on August 9, 2007, that revised security regulations in Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai, HI (72 FR 44775). While the notice of proposed rulemaking preceding that final rule stated that the Kahe Point, Oahu security zone would be enforced only upon the occurrence of certain events, we did not reflect that provision in the regulatory text. This document corrects that error.
Anchorage Regulation; San Francisco Bay, CA
The Coast Guard is submitting for public consideration this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking. We propose to create in San Francisco Bay a temporary anchorage area, designated Anchorage 8A, adjacent to existing anchorage 8 that can be activated by Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) when the number of vessels requesting to anchor in Anchorages 8 and 9 exceeds the capacity of these two anchorages. Promulgating a permanent rule to establish the temporary anchorage area allows the Coast Guard to define its use and location, and to establish procedures for activating the anchorage area and notifying the maritime public.
Safety Zone; Monte Foundation Fireworks Extravaganza, Aptos, CA
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for the Monte Foundation Fireworks Extravaganza to be held at Seacliff State Beach in Aptos, California, on October 13, 2007. The fireworks display will be launched from the Seacliff State Beach Pier. This safety zone is established to ensure the safety of participants and spectators from the dangers associated with the pyrotechnics. Unauthorized persons or vessels are prohibited from entering into, transiting through, or remaining in the safety zone without permission of the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.
Safety Zone; Blue Island Regatta, Calumet Sag Channel, Blue Island, IL
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Calumet Sag Channel and Little Calumet River, Blue Island, IL. This zone is intended to restrict vessels from a portion of the Calumet Sag Channel during the Blue Island Regatta November 3 and November 4, 2007. This temporary safety zone will establish restrictions upon, and control the movement of, vessels in a specified area immediately prior to, during, and immediately after the regatta.
Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Corson Inlet, New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway (NJICW), Townsend Inlet, NJ
The Coast Guard proposes to change the drawbridge operation regulations of four Cape May County Bridge Commission (the Commission) bridges: The Corson Inlet Bridge, at mile 0.9, at Strathmere; the Stone Harbor Boulevard Bridge, at NJICW mile 102.0, across Great Channel at Stone Harbor; the Two-Mile Bridge, at NJICW mile 112.2, across Middle Thorofare in Wildwood Crest; and the Townsend Inlet Bridge, at mile 0.3 in Avalon, NJ. This proposal would allow the drawbridges to operate on an advance notice basis on particular dates at particular times during holidays in December of every year. This proposal would allow the draw tenders to spend the holiday with their families while still providing for the reasonable needs of navigation.
