Safety Zone; Marine Event Held in the Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for a fireworks display within the Captain of the Port (COTP) Long Island Sound (LIS) 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 the limited access area is prohibited unless authorized by the COTP LIS.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Matanzas River, St. Augustine, FL
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule and vertical clearance that governs the Crescent Beach Bridge (SR 206) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (Matanzas River), mile 788.6, at St. Augustine, Florida. The temporary deviation is necessary to complete rehabilitation work on the bridge. This temporary deviation allows the bridge single-leaf operations on a schedule with an advanced notice for a double-leaf opening and a two foot reduction in the vertical clearance of the bridge. This action is intended to allow for the contractor to conduct necessary rehabilitation work on the bascule spans with little to no effect on navigation.
Safety Zone; Mississippi River; New Orleans, LA
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for certain navigable waters of the Mississippi River. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near New Orleans, LA, during a fireworks display on October 28, 2017. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from being in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port New Orleans (COTP) or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
