Estimated Time per Respondent: 0.25 hours. Estimated Total Annual Time Burden: 2,652 hours. Annual Frequency of Response: 1.

The Coast Guard is amending its regulations pertaining to the Atchafalaya River, Berwick Bay, Berwick Bay, LA, navigation area. Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Berwick Bay determined that the Southern Pacific Railroad (SPRR) Bridge visual displays were no longer necessary due to updated VTS technologies and procedures that actively inform towing vessels that the rules of 33 CFR 165.811 are in effect at the time of entry into the VTS. This action relieves both the owner of the SPRR Bridge and the Coast Guard from maintaining antiquated visual displays and related equipment.

Special local regulation: ULHRA Hydroplane Races, Howard Amon Park, Richland, WA
The Coast Guard is undertaking two actions with regard to the above captioned regulation.

The second is to correct the previous error by establishing a temporary special local regulation for the ULHRA National Series Hydroplane Race to be held on the waters of the Columbia River in the vicinity of Howard Amon Park, Richland, WA. These special local regulations limit the movement of non-participating vessels in the regulated race area.
