The Corps of Engineers is proposing to amend its regulations to establish a restricted area in the Menominee River, at the Marinette Marine Corporation Shipyard, Marinette, Wisconsin, to provide adequate protection for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS Freedom 1) during its construction. The regulations are necessary to provide adequate protection of the ship, its materials, equipment to be installed therein, and its crew, while it is located at the property of Marinette Marine Corporation.
