The Isleton Drawbridge, mile 18.7, over the Sacramento River, Solano County, CA, provides 18 feet vertical clearance above Mean Lower Low Water when closed. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so at all times. This deviation has been coordinated with commercial operators and various marinas on the waterway. No objections were received. The normal drawbridge regulation requires the bridge to open on signal from May 1 through October 31 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and from November 1 through April 30 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At all other times, the draws shall open on signal if at least four hours notice is given.

In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(c), this work will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible. This deviation from the normal operating regulations in 33 CFR 117.5 is authorized in accordance with the provisions of 33 CFR 117.35.
