The Coast Guard is withdrawing its proposed rule concerning the regulation governing the operation of the SR 433 Bridge over Bayou Liberty, mile 2.0, St. Tammany Parish, Slidell, LA. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (the bridge owner) proposed a change in the operating schedule to reduce the hours of manned operation of the bridge to make more efficient use of personnel and operating resources. Based on public comments expressing concern with the impact the proposed changes would have on public access to the waterway, the bridge owner no longer desires to move forward with the proposed rule.
