Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Sabine River, Near Ruliff, LA
The Coast Guard is removing the existing drawbridge operation regulation for the Kansas City Southern (KCS) Railroad drawbridge across Sabine River, mile 36.2, between Newton County, TX and Calcasieu Parish, LA. The drawbridge was converted to a fixed bridge in 2012 and the operating regulation is no longer applicable or necessary.
Updates to Standards Incorporated by Reference; Reapproved ASTM Standards; Technical Amendment
Many of the Coast Guard's regulations incorporate by reference consensus standards that are developed by organizations other than the Coast Guard. This final rule updates references to standards developed by ASTM International, that have been reapproved, without change, since their incorporation into Coast Guard regulation. This rule does not address standards that have changed substantively, and it will not have any substantive impact on the regulated public.
