Notice of proposed rulemaking; change of address and docket number for comments.


On September 2, 2005, the Coast Guard published a notice and requested comments on a proposed change to regulations governing six drawbridges across Bayou Lafourche, south of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. The proposed rule would change bridge schedules so that they would remain closed to navigation at various times on weekdays during the school year to facilitate the safe, efficient movement of staff, students and other residents within the parish. That notice was signed August 26, 2005, before Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and caused that city to be flooded. We have changed the address and docket number where comments on the proposed rule should be sent because of flood conditions in New Orleans.


Comments and related material must reach the Coast Guard on or before November 1, 2005.
