Safety Zone; Super Bowl LV; Hillsborough Bay and River, Tampa, FL
Document Number: 2021-02107
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-02-01
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on certain waters of Garrison Channel, Seddon Channel Turning Basin, and the Hillsborough River, in the vicinity of downtown Tampa, Florida during the Super Bowl LV celebrations. The safety zone is necessary to protect the public and Super Bowl LV event personnel from the hazards associated with potential vessel traffic within the area of the safety zone. All persons and vessels would be required to transit through the safety zone at a steady speed and may not slow down, stop or anchor except in the case of unforeseen mechanical failure or other emergency unless given prior authorization from the Captain of the Port. Any person or vessel forced to slow or stop in the established zone must immediately notify the Captain of the Port Tampa via VHF channel 16.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway, Atlantic City, NJ
Document Number: 2021-02058
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-02-01
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is temporarily modifying the operating schedule that governs the Route 30 (Absecon Boulevard) Bridge across the New Jersey Intracoastal Waterway (NJICW), Beach Thorofare, mile 67.2, at Atlantic City, NJ. This temporary modification will allow the drawbridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position to accommodate critical bridge maintenance.
Anchorage; Galveston Harbor, Bolivar Roads Channel, Galveston, TX
Document Number: 2021-02000
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-02-01
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is establishing a 48-hour time limit in Anchorage Area (B) in Bolivar Roads near Galveston, Texas. Anchorage areas (A) and (C) in the Bolivar Roads Channel already have a 48-hour time limit, but anchorage (B) did not. This resulted in vessels remaining in anchorage (B) for extended periods, blocking other vessels with pressing logistical needs, adversely affecting commerce and impacting navigational safety. Except when stress of weather makes sailing impractical or hazardous, this rule will prohibit vessels from anchoring in anchorage area (B) for more than 48 hours unless expressly authorized by the Captain of the Port Houston-Galveston.
