Coast Guard October 24, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Reynolds Channel, Lawrence, NY
Document Number: 2017-23053
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-24
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is modifying the operating schedule that governs the Atlantic Beach Bridge across Reynolds Channel, mile 0.4 at Lawrence, New York. This action is necessary to allow for an unexpected delay in the reconstruction and painting of the bascule leaves. A temporary deviation was previously granted for a length of 180 days. As the Coast Guard may not approve extensions beyond that allotted timeframe nor approve back-to-back or sequential deviations, it is necessary to issue this rule in order to allow the bridge owner to complete the remaining work items.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Isthmus Slough, Coos Bay, OR
Document Number: 2017-23052
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-24
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to change the operating schedule that governs the Oregon State secondary highway bridge (Isthmus Slough Bridge), across Isthmus Slough, mile 1.0, at Coos Bay, OR. To accommodate Oregon Department of Transportation's (ODOT) preservation, painting and replacement of the bridge equipment, the Coast Guard proposes to operate half the double bascule span (single leaf). Additionally, during the period of this work, the non-functioning leaf of the span's vertical clearance will be reduced.
Regulated Navigation Area; Beals Island Bridge Replacement, Moosabec Reach, Jonesport, ME
Document Number: 2017-23049
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-24
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary Regulated Navigation Area (RNA) for the navigable waters within 150-yards of the Beals Island Bridge between Jonesport, ME, and Beals Island, ME. The RNA is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from the potential hazards created by the demolition, subsequent removal, and replacement of the Beals Island Bridge. This RNA will establish speed and beam restrictions on vessels transiting the regulated area during bridge replacement operations. This rule will also allow the Coast Guard to prohibit vessel traffic through the RNA when necessary.

Safety Zone; Mamala Bay, Oahu, HI
Document Number: 2017-22992
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-24
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
On October 10, 2017, the fishing vessel PACIFIC PARADISE ran aground off of the navigable waters of Mamala Bay near Waikiki at Kaimana Beach, Oahu, Hawaii. On October 11, 2017, the Coast Guard established for seven days a temporary safety zone encompassing all waters extending 500 yards in all directions around the grounded fishing vessel located approximately 350 yards southwest of Kaimana Beach in position 21[deg]15.69' N.; 157[deg]49.49' W. to assist with vessel salvage operations. On October 18, 2017 the Coast Guard will extend the safety zone for two additional weeks while salvage operations continue. The temporary safety zone currently stationary around the grounded vessel will become a moving safety zone during the salvage and removal operation and remain a moving safety zone so until the towing operation is complete. During salvage and removal operations, the zone will continue to encompass 500 yards in all directions around the vessel at all times. When salvage tow operations commence, the Coast Guard will provide notice via a broadcast notice to mariners. The extension of this safety zone and shift to a moving safety zone during salvage and removal are necessary to protect personnel, vessels and the marine environment from potential hazards associated with ongoing operations to remove a grounded vessel in this area. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Honolulu.
