Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Lake Champlain, Swanton, VT
Document Number: 2013-05132
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-03-06
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is changing the drawbridge operation regulation that governs the operation of the New England Central Railroad Bridge across Missisquoi Bay, mile 105.6, at Swanton, Vermont, and removing the regulation for the SR78 highway bridge at mile 105.9. The owner of the New England Central Railroad Bridge has requested to operate the bridge from a remote location, at St. Albans, Vermont. It is expected that this change to the regulations will provide relief to the bridge owner from crewing the bridge while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
