This modified deviation is necessary to perform emergency bridge repairs and provide for safe navigation. This modified deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position.
Safety Zones; Sector Upper Mississippi River Annual and Recurring Safety Zones Update
The Coast Guard proposes to amend and update its annual and recurring safety zones that take place in the Coast Guard Sector Upper Mississippi River area of responsibility (AOR). This document informs the public of regularly scheduled events that require additional safety measures through establishing a safety zone. This document also proposes to update the current list of recurring safety zones with revisions, additional events, and removal of events that no longer take place in Sector Upper Mississippi River's AOR. Additionally, this one proposed rulemaking project reduces administrative costs involved in producing separate proposed rules for each individual recurring safety zone and serves to provide notice of the known recurring safety zones throughout the year. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
