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.
Notice of temporary deviation from regulations.
The Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operation regulations for the Brightman Street Bridge, mile 1.8, across the Taunton River between Somerset and Fall River, Massachusetts. This deviation from the regulations, effective from 9 p.m. on April 12, 2002 through 4 p.m. on April 26, 2002, allows the bridge to remain in the closed position for vessel traffic to facilitate scheduled maintenance at the bridge.
This deviation is effective from April 12, 2002 through April 26, 2002.Start Further Info

John W. McDonald, Project Officer, First Coast Guard District, at (617) 223-8364.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The bridge owner, Massachusetts Highway Department, requested a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operating regulations on February 11, 2002, to facilitate necessary structural repairs at the bridge, replacement of the main floor beam, from 9 p.m. on April 5, 2002 through 4 p.m. on April 19, 2002.
The Coast Guard published a temporary deviation (CGD01-02-035) on March 27, 2002, to facilitate the above scheduled bridge maintenance. The Coast Guard received a revised request from the owner of the bridge changing the effective period for this scheduled bridge maintenance to 9 p.m. on April 12, 2002 through 4 p.m. on April 26, 2002, as a result of a late response from an upstream facility expecting a ship delivery that would be in conflict with the original effective period.
As a result of the above information, this deviation to the operating regulations, cancels the temporary deviation (CGD01-02-035) published on March 27, 2002, and allows the Brightman Street Bridge to remain in the closed position for vessel traffic from 9 p.m. on April 12, 2002 through 4 p.m. on April 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
