Safety Zone; Delaware River; Penn's Landing; Philadelphia, PA; Fireworks Display
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone on a portion of the Delaware River in Philadelphia, PA. This action is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels on these navigable waters adjacent to Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, PA, during a fireworks display on September 16, 2018. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from entering, transiting, or remaining within the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Delaware Bay or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.

Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Petaluma River, Haystack Landing (Petaluma), CA
The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Northwestern Pacific (SMART) railroad bridge across the Petaluma River, mile 12.4, at Haystack Landing (Petaluma), CA. This deviation will be a second test of a change to the drawbridge operation schedule to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is appropriate.
