The bridge owner, Westchester County Department of Public Works, requested a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operating regulations to facilitate necessary maintenance, replacement of deteriorated concrete and structural supports, at the bridge. The performance of these repairs require the bridge to remain in the closed position.
The Coast Guard and the owner of the bridge coordinated this closure with the mariners that normally use this waterway to help facilitate this necessary bridge repair and to minimize any disruption to the marine transportation system. Therefore, as a result of that coordination effort, a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operation regulations has been approved. Under this temporary deviation the Glen Island Bridge will not open for vessel traffic from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., Sunday through Friday, from April 29, 2002 through June 26, 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.Start Signature
