Safety Zone; Cape Fear River, NC

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-01-12
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of the Cape Fear River in Brunswick County and New Hanover County, North Carolina. This temporary safety zone is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River while a vessel transports two new Post-Panamax gantry cranes to the North Carolina State Port in Wilmington, North Carolina. This action is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River to protect mariners and vessels from the hazards associated with transporting the assembled gantry cranes. Entry of vessels or persons into this safety zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) North Carolina or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
