The existing regulations in 33 CFR 117.261(aa) governing the operation of the Atlantic Avenue bridge (SR 806), mile 1039.6, at Delray Beach, Florida, allow the draw to open on signal, except that, from November 1 through May 31 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, the draw need open only on the hour, and half hour. This bridge provides a horizontal clearance of 45 feet between the fender and the down span.

Quinn Construction requested on September 30, 2002, that the Coast Guard allow it to keep a single-leaf of the bridge in the closed position from 8 p.m. on December 9, 2002, until 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2002, to facilitate repairs to the bridge spans.

The District Commander granted a deviation from the operating requirements listed in 33 CFR 117.261(aa) to allow Quinn Construction, representing the owner, to facilitate repairs to the bridge spans. Under this deviation, one leaf of the Atlantic Avenue bridge may remain in the closed position from 8 p.m. on December 9, 2002, until 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2002. A double-leaf opening is available if 12 hours notice is provided to the bridge tender.

In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(c), this work will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible.
