SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Brady Road swing span bridge across Bayou Du Large, mile 22.6, near Theriot, Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, has a vertical clearance of 5 feet above high water in the closed-to-navigation position and unlimited clearance in the open-to-navigation position. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of fishing vessels, and recreational craft. The Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government requested a temporary deviation from the normal operation of the drawbridge in order to accommodate the maintenance work, involving jacking up the swing span and driving new foundation pilings to support and level the pivot pier. This maintenance is essential for the continued operation of the bridge.

This deviation allows the draw of the Brady Road swing span drawbridge across Bayou Du Large, mile 22.6, to remain closed to navigation from 6 a.m. on September 22, 2000 through 7 p.m. on October 1, 2000.
