Port Access Route Study: Seacoast of New Jersey Including Offshore Approaches to the Delaware Bay, Delaware
The Coast Guard is conducting a Port Access Route Study (PARS) to determine whether existing or additional vessel routing measures are necessary along the seacoast of New Jersey and approaches to the Delaware Bay. The PARS will consider whether existing or additional routing measures are necessary to improve navigation safety due to factors such as planned or potential offshore development, current port capabilities and planned improvements, increased vessel traffic, existing and potential anchorage areas, changing vessel traffic patterns, weather conditions, or navigational difficulty. Vessel routing measures are implemented to reduce the risk of marine casualties. Examples of potential measures include traffic separation schemes, two-way routes, recommended tracks, deep-water routes, precautionary areas, and areas to be avoided. The recommendations of the study may lead to future rulemakings or international agreements.

By this final rule, the Coast Guard is making non-substantive changes to the final rule that published on March 19, 2020. The final rule became effective on April 20, 2020. However, the amendatory instruction in the rule issued on March 19, 2020 erroneously created a new section rather than amend the section that already existed in the CFR. We are reissuing this final rule with updated amendatory instructions in order to implement the changes that were intended to be implemented by the final rule that published on March 19, 2020.
