Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Old Fort Bayou, MS
The Coast Guard proposes to change the operating schedule that governs the State Road 609 highway bascule bridge across the Old Fort Bayou mile 1.6, Ocean Springs, Harrison County, Mississippi. This proposed action would allow the bridge to close to vessel traffic from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, except federal holidays and require a 12 hour notification to open the bridge to vessels on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. This proposed action is intended to enhance vehicle safety and allow the bridge owner to effectively manage bridge operations during federal holidays.
