Background and Purpose
On April 13, 2009, we published a temporary deviation entitled “Drawbridge Operating Regulations; Back Bay of Biloxi, Biloxi, Mississippi” in the Federal Register (74 FR 16781). The temporary deviation concerned allowing the I-110 bridge across the Back Bay of Biloxi, mile 3.0, in Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi to remain closed to navigation for two (2) two-hour periods daily to facilitate the movement of vehicular traffic. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
The deviation was established to facilitate the flow of increased vehicular traffic on the I-110 bridge caused by the allision to the Popps Ferry Rd. bridge. The Popps Ferry Rd. bridge was damaged in an allision on March 20, 2009 when two sections of the roadway were destroyed. The bridge was returned to service on April 25, 2009, thus reducing the vehicular traffic on the I-110 bridge during the morning and afternoon rush hours.Start Signature
