Safety Zone; James River; Newport News, VA
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a safety zone on the navigable waters of the James River in the vicinity of the James River Reserve Fleet and Hog Island, Virginia for multiple periods of one hour in length each on all weekdays from August 6 until August 15, 2014. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessel movement in the specified area during the United States Navy's demonstrations involving unmanned and remote-operated crafts. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life and property on the surrounding navigable waters during the events due to the high speed maneuvering of the vessels and the experimental nature of the control technology.
