Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Saugus River, Revere and Lynn, MA
Document Number: 2014-24171
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is changing the operating schedule that governs the General Edwards SR1A Bridge across the Saugus River at mile 1.7, between Revere and Lynn, Massachusetts. The bridge owner, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, submitted a request to require a two-hour advance notice for bridge openings at all times based upon infrequent requests to open the draw during past years. It is expected that this change to the regulations will create efficiency in drawbridge operations while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Oceanport Creek, Oceanport, NJ
Document Number: 2014-24170
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is withdrawing its notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the New Jersey Transit Rail Operations (NJTRO) Bridge across Oceanport Creek at mile 8.4, at Oceanport, New Jersey. The bridge owner submitted a request to require a four-hour advance notice for bridge openings year-round based upon infrequent requests to open the draw over the last three years. The Coast Guard is withdrawing this notice of proposed rulemaking because the data supporting the bridge owner's request was based upon the past three years of bridge openings; however, we received comments in response to our notice of proposed rulemaking that advised us that the Fort Monmouth Marina and Restaurant, located upstream from the bridge, was closed during the three year time period when the bridge opening data was collected. Subsequently, marina and restaurant has re- opened and it is now anticipated that the number of bridge opening requests will significantly increase. As a result of the above information we do not believe that a four- hour advance notice for bridge openings is justified at this time and that a four-hour advance notice for bridge openings would not meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
