Port Access Route Study: Northern New York Bight
The Coast Guard is seeking additional information related to the notice of study that was published on June 29, 2020, regarding the Northern New York Bight Port Access Route Study (NNYBPARS). Following a review of the comments and materials received, we identified several areas of additional inquiry related to the study. We invite your comments and responses to the proposed questions and information requests.
Information Collection Request to Office of Management and Budget; OMB Control Number: 1625-0018
In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the U.S. Coast Guard intends to submit an Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), requesting an extension of its approval for the following collection of information: 1625-0018, Official Logbook; without change. Our ICR describes the information we seek to collect from the public. Before submitting this ICR to OIRA, the Coast Guard is inviting comments as described below.
Security Zone; San Juan, Puerto Rico
The Coast Guard is revising an existing, moving security zone for the Port of San Juan, San Juan, Puerto Rico. The revision expands the existing moving security zone to a 200-yard radius around all cruise ships entering, departing, or anchored in the Port of San Juan. While the cruise ships are moored at the Port of San Juan, the security zone remains a 50-yard radius around the cruise ships. This action continues to prohibit persons and vessels from entering, anchoring, mooring or transiting in the security zone, unless authorized by the Coast Guard Captain of the Port of San Juan or a designated representative. This action is necessary to better meet the safety and security needs of the Port of San Juan.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Fox River, Oshkosh, WI
The Coast Guard proposes to authorize the Canadian National Railroad Bridge, mile 55.72, across the Fox River to operate remotely. The request was made by the bridge owner. This proposed rule will re- establish remote operations of the bridge and will not change the operating schedule of the bridge.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Okeechobee Waterway, Indiantown, FL
The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule that governs the Seaboard System Railroad Bridge, across the Okeechobee Waterway, mile 28.2, at Indiantown, Florida. This proposed change would allow the swing bridge to be remotely operated, change the start and end times for advance notification for an opening during the overnight hours and update the name of the bridge. The Coast Guard is seeking comments from the public regarding the proposed changes.
Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Indian Creek, Miami Beach, FL
The Coast Guard proposes to modify the operating schedule that governs the 63rd Street Bridge, across Indian Creek, mile 4.0, at Miami Beach, Florida. A request was made to place the drawbridge on a weekend operating schedule to alleviate vehicle congestion due to on-demand bridge openings. This proposed change would place the bridge on an operating schedule during the weekend at specified times. The Coast Guard is seeking comments from the public regarding this proposed change.
