This temporary safety zone is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Patapsco River from September 1, 2021, through November 17, 2021, while work crews install power transmission lines crossing over the river. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from being in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
