Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Canaveral Barge Canal, Canaveral, FL
Document Number: 2017-09598
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-11
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has modified a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the SR 401 Drawbridge, mile 5.5 at Port Canaveral, Florida. This modified deviation is necessary to reduce vehicular traffic congestion and to ensure the safety of the roadways while passengers are transiting to and from Cruise Terminal 10, which is used by Norwegian Cruise Line at Port Canaveral. Since the arrival of the cruise ship Norwegian Epic to the Port of Canaveral, massive traffic back-ups have been caused by the drawbridge openings. This modified deviation allows the bridge to not open to navigation during prime cruise ship passenger loading and unloading times on Saturdays and Sundays.
