The New Jersey Transit railroad bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 3 feet at mean high water and 8 feet at mean low water. The bridge owner, New Jersey Transit, requested a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operating regulations to facilitate necessary electric drive and brake system maintenance at the bridge. The nature of these repairs will require the bridge to be closed to navigation during the implementation of this work.

The marine operators that normally use this waterway were contacted regarding this temporary deviation and no objections were received. This deviation to the operating regulations will allow the bridge to remain in the closed position from 7 a.m. on February 18, 2002 through 6 p.m. on March 2, 2002.

This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35, and will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible.
