The SR 844 (NE. 14th Street) bridge, mile 1055.0 at Pompano Beach, Broward County, Florida, has a vertical clearance of 15 feet at mean high water and a horizontal clearance of 45 feet between the down span and the fender system. The existing operating regulations in 33 CFR 117.261(cc) require the bridge to open on signal, except that, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the draw need open only on the quarter-hour and three-quarter-hour.
The Florida Department of Transportation notified the Coast Guard on July 24, 2002, that due to an equipment malfunction, they temporarily can only operate a single-leaf of the drawbridge. A double-leaf opening will be available if a one-hour's notice is provided to the bridge tender, allowing enough time to bring in a work crew to open the other leaf.
The District Commander has granted a temporary deviation from the operating requirements listed in 33 CFR 117.261(cc) to complete repairs to the drawbridge. Under this deviation, the SR 844 (NE. 14th Street) bridge, mile 1055.0 at Pompano Beach, need only open a single-leaf on signal; except that, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., the draw need open a single-leaf on the quarter-hour and three-quarter-hour from 12:01 a.m. on August 2, 2002, to 8 p.m. on August 14, 2002. A double-leaf opening will be available if one-hour's advance notice is provided to the bridge tender from 12:01 a.m. on August 2, 2002, to 8 p.m. on August 14, 2002.Start Signature
