The Coast Guard proposes to establish a temporary safety zone for the navigable waters within a 50 yard radius from the center point of The Gut Bridge in South Bristol, ME between Rutherford Island and Bristol Neck. The safety zone is necessary to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created during bedrock removal operations. When enforced, this proposed rule would prohibit entry of vessels or persons into the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Northern New England or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
