Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Hackensack River, Jersey City, NJ
Document Number: 2014-14172
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-17
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is changing the operating schedule that governs the PATH Railroad Bridge across the Hackensack River at mile 3.0, and the Hack-Freight Bridge across the Hackensack River at mile 3.1, at Jersey City, New Jersey. The owners of the bridges, the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) and Conrail, requested a change to the operation schedule for the PATH Railroad Bridge and the Conrail Hack- Freight to allow it to be operated from a remote location. In addition, we removed obsolete language and requirements from the existing regulation that are now listed under other regulations. It is expected that this change to the regulations will create efficiency in drawbridge operations while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
