The City of San Francisco requested a temporary change to the operation of the Third Street Drawbridge, mile 0.0, over China Basin, at San Francisco, CA. The Third Street Drawbridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 7 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. The draw opens on signal if at least one hour notice is given as required by 33 CFR 117.149. Navigation on the waterway is recreational.
The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position 7 a.m. through 12:30 p.m. on July 29, 2007 to allow participants in the San Francisco Marathon to cross the bridge during the event. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised.
Vessels that can transit the bridge, while in the closed-to-navigation position, may continue to do so at any time.
In the event of an emergency the draw can be opened with 30 minutes advance notice.
In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.Start Signature
