Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Indian River, Titusville, FL
Document Number: 2017-23322
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has modified a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the NASA Railroad Bridge (Jay Jay Bridge) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (Indian River), mile 876.6, Titusville, Florida. This modified deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to continue repairs to the bridge. Due to delays and damage caused by Hurricane Irma, additional repairs will be required causing the bridge to remain closed to navigation periodically throughout the day. This deviation is deemed necessary for the continued safe operation of the bridge.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, St. Augustine, FL
Document Number: 2017-23321
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is withdrawing its advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) concerning the Bridge of Lions (SR A1A) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, mile 777.9, at St. Augustine, Florida. The City of St. Augustine proposed to modify the bridge operating schedule to alleviate vehicle traffic congestion. However, the Coast Guard has determined it would be inappropriate to move forward with a notice of proposed rulemaking. The Coast Guard believes placing additional restrictions to the bridge would add additional hazards to mariners and effect the safe navigation of vessels awaiting bridge openings.

Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security

Local officials are requesting this action to assist in reducing the long line of traffic backups caused by the bridge openings.
