The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Canadian Pacific Railroad Drawbridge across the Black River, at Mile 1.0, near La Crosse, Wisconsin. This deviation is related to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) under the same docket number and will test a change to the drawbridge operation schedule to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is needed as proposed by the NPRM. This deviation will allow remote operation of the drawspan. Remote operation will enable the bridge to open on demand, instead of with a two-hour delay as it is currently operated when the on-site bridge tender is present.
