Coast Guard February 13, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, Sarasota, FL
Document Number: 2017-02896
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-02-13
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule of four bridges across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway; Stickney Point, mile 68.6, Siesta Drive, mile 71.6, Cortez, mile, 87.4 and Anna Maria, mile 89.2, Drawbridges, Sarasota, FL. The request was made to the Coast Guard to change the operation of four drawbridges due to an increase in vehicle traffic throughout these areas at all times of the year. This proposed rulemaking would change the bridges' operating schedule from a three times an hour opening schedule to a twice an hour opening schedule throughout the year.
