SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Triborough 125th Street Bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 54 feet at mean high water and 59 feet at mean low water. The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.789(d).

The owner of the bridge, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, requested a temporary deviation from the drawbridge operation regulations to allow the bridge to remain in the closed position for thirty-days in order to facilitate major structural repairs at the bridge. The bridge will not be capable of opening once these repairs commence. The Triborough 125 Street Bridge rarely opens for the passage of vessel traffic.

Under this temporary deviation the Triborough 125th Street Bridge may remain in the closed position for thirty-days, April 1, 2005, through April 30, 2005.

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.
