Coast Guard November 14, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; China Basin, Mission Creek, San Francisco, CA
Document Number: 2017-24593
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-14
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to temporarily modify the operating schedule that governs the 3rd Street Bridge, across China Basin, Mission Creek, mile 0.0, at San Francisco, California. This action is necessary to allow the bridge owner, the City of San Francisco, to keep the drawspan in the closed-to-navigation position in order to conduct critical mechanical and structural rehabilitation over an estimated 18 month period, scheduled to commence in February 2018. The temporary change to the regulations is expected to meet the reasonable needs of navigation on the waterway. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
Safety Zone; Delaware River; Marcus Hook, NJ
Document Number: 2017-24554
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-14
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone on the waters of the Delaware River between Marcus Hook Range and Tinicum Range. The safety zone will temporarily restrict vessel traffic from transiting or anchoring in portions of the Delaware River while rock blasting, dredging, and rock removal operations are being conducted to facilitate the Main Channel Deepening project for the Delaware River. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from hazards created by rock blasting, dredging, and rock removal operations. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) or his designated representatives. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
