Regulated Navigation Area; Vessel Traffic in Vicinity of Marseilles Dam; Illinois River
The Coast Guard is establishing a Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) on the Illinois River. This Temporary Final Rule stipulates operational requirements and places navigational and operational restrictions on all vessels transiting the Illinois River from Mile Marker 240.0 to Mile Marker 271.4. This RNA is necessary to protect the general public, vessels, and tows from the hazards associated with obstructions in the Marseilles Lock canal, recovery efforts related to the restoration of the Marseilles Dam, and salvage operations being conducted in its vicinity.

The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the waters of the Illinois River starting at Mile Marker 246.9 and extending 600 yards upstream of the Marseilles Dam to Mile Marker 247.2. This zone is intended to restrict the movement of vessels due to the salvage operations and repair efforts at the Marseilles Dam. This safety zone is necessary to protect the general public, vessels, and tows from the hazards associated with those repair and salvage operations.
Safety Zone; Bullhead City Regatta, Bullhead City, AZ
The Coast Guard is proposing a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of the Colorado River in Bullhead City, Arizona for the Bullhead City Regatta on August 10, 2013. This temporary safety zone is necessary to provide for the safety of the participants, crew, spectators, participating vessels, and other vessels and users of the waterway. Persons and vessels would be prohibited from entering into, transiting through or anchoring within this safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his designated representative.
Regulated Navigation Area; Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, New Orleans, LA
This supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) proposes revisions to the existing Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) established to protect the floodwalls and levees in the New Orleans area from possible storm surge damage caused by floating vessels. The Coast Guard proposes to revise the areas where floating vessels are prohibited and other areas where floating vessels will be restricted within the Gulf Intracostal Waterway (GIWW), the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IHNC), the Harvey Canal, and the Algiers Canal. This action is necessary for the flood protection of high-risk areas throughout the Greater New Orleans Area when a tropical event threatens to approach and impact the area.
