Coast Guard October 22, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Inner Harbor Navigational Canal, New Orleans, LA
Document Number: 2013-24318
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-10-22
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedules that govern the US 90 (Danzinger) Bridge across the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal (IHNC), mile 3.1, and the Senator Ted Hickey (Leon C. Simon Blvd./Seabrook) bridge across the IHNC, mile 4.6, both at New Orleans, LA. This deviation will test changes to the drawbridge operation schedule to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is needed. These changes would allow for the safe navigation of vessels while reflecting the low volume of vessel traffic through the bridges thereby increasing efficiency of operations. The changes will allow the bridges to operate in a manner that will align the two operating schedules so the bridge owner will be able to use the same bridge crew personnel to operate both bridges with little to no affect on navigation through the bridges.
