Type: Rule
Date: 2017-03-01

The Coast Guard is extending the effective period of a safety zone in the vicinity of the Eastport Breakwater Terminal, Eastport, Maine. This safety zone was established on January 9, 2015 (80 FR 1344). This rule will extend the effective period of the existing temporary final rule from January 30, 2017 until October 1, 2017. This rule will continue to restrict vessels from approaching within 100 yards of the eastern face of the Eastport Breakwater Terminal without authorization from the Captain of the Port (COTP) Sector Northern New England. This safety zone continues to be necessary due to the ongoing repairs to the breakwater following a partial collapse of the structure on December 4, 2014.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Connecticut River, East Haddam, CT
Document Number: 2017-03980
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-03-01
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule that governs the Route 82 Bridge (East Haddam Swing Bridge) across the Connecticut River, mile 16.8, at East Haddam, Connecticut. The bridge owner submitted a request to reduce scheduled openings of the span for recreational vessels in the boating season and to allow the bridge owner to require six hours notice for bridge openings at night in the winter season. It is expected this change to the regulations will better serve the needs of the community while continuing to meet the reasonable needs of navigation.
