Drawbridge Operation Regulation; St. Louis River (Duluth-Superior Harbor), Between the Towns of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI
Document Number: 2017-15371
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-07-21
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is modifying the regulations that govern the drawbridges over the St. Louis River at Duluth-Superior Harbor. This waterway borders Minnesota and Wisconsin and is listed under Minnesota as St. Louis River (Duluth-Superior Harbor) and under Wisconsin as Duluth-Superior Harbor (St. Louis River) in the CFR. This rule affects both regulations. The owner of the Burlington Northern Grassy Point Railroad Bridge at mile 5.44 requested the regulation be updated to include permanent winter operating schedule. This rule also aligns river mile numbers with the United States Coast Pilot and deletes bridges from the regulations that were removed from the waterway and makes the regulation easier to read and less confusing to the mariner.
