Coast Guard February 29, 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Anchorage Regulations: Special Anchorage Areas, Marina del Rey Harbor, California
Document Number: 2016-04336
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-29
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
On May 28, 2014, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to disestablish the special anchorage in Marina del Rey Harbor, California. Based on the comments received in response to that NPRM, we are now proposing to amend the shape and reduce the size of the special anchorage in Marina del Rey Harbor, California. Additionally, we propose to clarify the language in the note section of the existing regulation. This SNPRM would leave sufficient navigable water on adjacent sides of the anchorage for vessel traffic, effectively removing this special anchorage area from a location where it could endanger vessel traffic.

The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Loop Parkway Bridge, mile 0.7, across Long Creek, and the Meadowbrook State Parkway Bridge, mile 12.8, across Sloop Channel, both at Hempstead, New York. This temporary deviation is necessary to facilitate the Dee Snider's Motorcycle Ride to Fight Hunger on Long Island.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Lake Washington Ship Canal, Seattle, WA
Document Number: 2016-04244
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-29
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Montlake Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, mile 5.2, at Seattle, WA. The deviation is necessary to accommodate a bike ride by the Cascade Bicycle Club. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position to allow for the safe movement of event participants.
