The Coast Guard is establishing three special local regulations for three separate marine events within the Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound (LIS) Captain of the Port (COTP) Zone. This temporary final rule is necessary to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during these events. Entry into, transit through, mooring, or anchoring within these regulated areas is prohibited unless authorized by COTP Sector Long Island Sound.
Cargo Securing Manuals
The Coast Guard announces that it has received approval from the Office of Management and Budget for an information collection request associated with the Cargo Securing Manuals interim rule we published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2016. In that rule, we stated the interim rule will impose new information collection requirements and that we would submit these new information collection requirements to OMB for its review and publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the results of OMB's review. OMB approved this new collection of information, entitled Cargo Securing Manuals, on June 23, 2016, and assigned it OMB control number 1625-0122.
Safety Zone; Hudson River, South Nyack and Tarrytown, NY
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary moving safety zone for navigable waters of the Hudson River within a 200-yard radius of the LEFT COAST LIFTER crane barge during heavy lift operations. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by heavy lift operations conducted by the crane barge in the vicinity of the Tappan Zee Bridge. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port.

Special Local Regulation; Drag Boat Championship, Intracoastal Waterway; Bucksport, SC
The Coast Guard is establishing a special local regulation on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Bucksport, South Carolina during the Bucksport/Southeastern Drag Boat Summer Championship, on August 13, 2016 and August 14, 2016. This special local regulation is necessary to ensure the safety of participants, spectators, and the general public during the event. This regulation prohibits persons and vessels from being in the regulated area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Charleston or a designated representative.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Norwalk River, Norwalk, CT
The Coast Guard is modifying the operating schedule that governs the Metro-North WALK Bridge across the Norwalk River, mile 0.1, at Norwalk, Connecticut. The bridge owner submitted a request to require a greater advance notice for bridge openings and to increase time periods the bridge remains in the closed position during the weekday morning and evening rush hours. It is expected that this change to the regulations will create efficiency in drawbridge operations while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
