Shipping Safety Fairways Along the Atlantic Coast
The Coast Guard seeks comments regarding the possible establishment of shipping safety fairways (``fairways'') along the Atlantic Coast of the United States identified in the Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study. This potential system of fairways is intended to ensure that traditional navigation routes are kept free from obstructions that could impact navigation safety.
Safety Zone; Illinois River, Miles 10 to 187, Grafton, IL to Peoria, IL
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the navigable waters of the Illinois River from mile marker (MM) 10 to MM 187 between Grafton, IL and Peoria, IL. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of persons, vessels, and the marine environment on these navigable waters as a result of increasing flood conditions on the river that threaten to overtop levees. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Sector Upper Mississippi River (COTP) or a designated representative.
