Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Elizabeth River, Eastern Branch, VA
The Coast Guard proposes to change the regulations that govern the operation of the Berkley Bridge across the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River, mile 0.4, in Norfolk, Virginia.

The proposed change would relieve vehicular traffic congestion during the weekday rush hours while still providing for the reasonable needs of navigation.

This change will better inform the boating public and improve the level of safety at this event. Entry into the area established is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port.
