The Coast Guard announces that it is removing the conditions of entry on vessels arriving from the country of Islamic Republic of Mauritania.
Safety Zone, Newport River; Morehead City, NC
The Coast Guard proposes the establishment a safety zone on the waters of the Newport River under the main span US 70/Morehead CityNewport River high rise bridge in Carteret County, NC. This safety zone is necessary to provide for safety of life on navigable waters during the establishment of staging for bridge maintenance. This rule will enhance the safety of the contractors performing maintenance as well as the safety vessels that plan to transit this area.
Security Zones; Sector Southeastern New England Captain of the Port Zone
The Coast Guard proposes a permanent regulation that would create security zones around cruise ships in the Southeastern New England Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. These security zones are nearly identical to security zones currently put in place by a temporary final rule. The proposed rule would create a 100-yard radius security zone encompassing all navigable waters around any cruise ship anchored or moored and 200-yard radius security zone encompassing all navigable waters around any cruise ship underway that is being escorted by Coast Guard or law enforcement agencies assisting the Coast Guard. These zones are needed to protect cruise ships and the public from destruction, loss, or injury from sabotage, subversive acts, or other malicious acts of a similar nature. Persons or vessels may not enter these security zones without permission of the COTP or a COTP designated representative.
Safety Zone; Big Rock Blue Marlin Air Show; Bogue Sound, Morehead City, NC
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary Safety Zone for the ``Big Rock Blue Marlin Air Show'', an aerial demonstration to be held over the waters of Bogue Sound, adjacent to Morehead City, North Carolina. This Safety Zone is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the event. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Intracoastal Waterway from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m.
