Safety Zone; 4th of July Boat Parade, Savannah River, Savannah, GA
The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone for navigable waters on the Savannah River from the Elba Island Cut Jetty Light to the Eugene Talmage Memorial Bridge, Savannah, GA. The safety zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards created by a boat parade. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Savannah or a designated representative.
Safety Zone; Patapsco River, Baltimore, MD
The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary safety zone for certain waters of the Patapsco River. This action is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters near the Francis Scott Key (I-695) Bridge, Baltimore, MD. This temporary safety zone is intended to restrict vessel traffic on the Patapsco River from September 1, 2021, through November 17, 2021, while work crews install power transmission lines crossing over the river. This proposed rulemaking would prohibit persons and vessels from being in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Maryland-National Capital Region or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
