Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Indian River, Titusville, FL
Document Number: 2017-23322
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard has modified a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the NASA Railroad Bridge (Jay Jay Bridge) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (Indian River), mile 876.6, Titusville, Florida. This modified deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to continue repairs to the bridge. Due to delays and damage caused by Hurricane Irma, additional repairs will be required causing the bridge to remain closed to navigation periodically throughout the day. This deviation is deemed necessary for the continued safe operation of the bridge.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, St. Augustine, FL
Document Number: 2017-23321
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is withdrawing its advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) concerning the Bridge of Lions (SR A1A) across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, mile 777.9, at St. Augustine, Florida. The City of St. Augustine proposed to modify the bridge operating schedule to alleviate vehicle traffic congestion. However, the Coast Guard has determined it would be inappropriate to move forward with a notice of proposed rulemaking. The Coast Guard believes placing additional restrictions to the bridge would add additional hazards to mariners and effect the safe navigation of vessels awaiting bridge openings.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Snake Creek; Islamorada, FL
Document Number: 2017-23320
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-26
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security

This deviation allows the bridge to open once every two hours verses the current operating regulation. Local officials are requesting this action to assist in reducing the long line of traffic backups caused by the bridge openings.

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.

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.

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.

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Canaveral Barge Canal, Canaveral, FL
Document Number: 2017-22939
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-23
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule that governs the SR 401 Drawbridge, mile 5.5 at Port Canaveral, Florida. This modified regulation 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 homeporting of the cruise ship Norwegian Epic in the Port of Canaveral, traffic back-ups have been caused by the drawbridge openings. This modified regulation allows the bridge not to open to navigation during typical cruise-ship passenger loading and unloading times on Saturdays and Sundays.
