The Coast Guard is changing the drawbridge operation regulation governing the operation of the Connection Slough Drawbridge. This final rule ensures a drawbridge operator can be contacted, is present at the drawbridge during identified increased navigation periods, and reduces the hours a drawbridge operator is required to be at the drawbridge and not gainfully employed. These changes will continue to provide for the reasonable needs of navigation.
Agency Contact: If you have questions on this rule, call or e-mail Mr. David H. Sulouff, Bridge Administrator, Eleventh Coast Guard District; telephone (510) 437-3516, e-mail David.H.Sulouff@uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing the electronic docket, call Ms. Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202-366-9826.
This rule is final. Its effective date is July 27, 2009.
