The Onslow Beach Swing Bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 12 feet, above mean high water.
The U.S. Navy (the bridge owner) has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.821(a)(2) to close the drawbridge to navigation to facilitate hydraulic repairs on the northeast and southeast ends and the power components of bridge.
To facilitate the mechanical repairs, the Onslow Beach Swing Bridge will be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position from 8 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2007 until and including 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 13, 2007, and from 8 a.m. on Tuesday, September 25, 2007 until and including 8 a.m. on Thursday, September 27, 2007.
The Coast Guard has informed the known commercial users of the waterway of the change to the regulations concerning this so that these vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
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
