Safety Zone; Ohio River, Louisville, KY
Document Number: 2018-28131
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-12-27
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing an emergency temporary safety zone for all navigable waters of the Ohio River extending from mile marker (MM) 530.6 to MM 533.0. This emergency safety zone is needed to protect life, vessels, and the marine environment due to the increase in river level, extreme currents and excessive drift causing vessels to allide with Markland Lock and Dam. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) or a designated representative.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Hudson River, Albany and Rensselaer, NY
Document Number: 2018-28122
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-12-27
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is modifying the operating schedule that governs the CSX Transportation Bridge (alternatively referred to as the ``Livingston Ave Bridge'') across the Hudson River, mile 146.2, between Albany and Rensselaer, New York. The bridge owner, National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak), submitted a request to allow the bridge to require four hours notice for bridge openings. This final rule would extend the notice required for bridge opening during the summer months due to the infrequent number of requests, and reduce burden on the bridge tender.
