This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Coast Guard, DOT.
The Commander, Eighth Coast Guard District has authorized a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the Rock Island Railroad and Highway Drawbridge, Mile 482.9, Upper Mississippi River at Davenport, Iowa. This deviation allows the drawbridge to remain closed to navigation for 57 days from 7 a.m., January 1, 2001, until 7 a.m., February 26, 2001. This action is required to allow the bridge owner time for preventive maintenance in the winter, before Lock 12 opens March 1, 2001, and when there is less impact on navigation; instead of scheduling maintenance in the summer, when river traffic increases.
This temporary deviation is effective from 7 a.m., January 1, 2001, until 7 a.m., February 26, 2001.Start Further Info
