M&J Construction Company of behalf of the bridge owner, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), has requested a deviation to the regulation of the Coronado Beach/George C. Musson (SR 44) Bridge across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, mile 854.0, New Smyrna, FL. The bridge provides a vertical clearance of 24 feet in the closed position. As required by 33 CFR 117.261(h), the bridge shall open on signal, except that from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., each day of the week, the draw need only open on the hour, twenty minutes past the hour and forty minutes past the hour. The deviation is from 6 a.m. on June 30, 2009 through 6 a.m. on July 3, 2009. During the deviation this bridge will remain closed to navigation. Vessels not requiring an opening may pass at any time. This action is necessary because the bridge will be inoperable in a jacked-up state to perform repairs. The action will affect all vessels requiring an opening during this time period. Vessels unable to transit through this area may transit via an ocean route or schedule their transit prior to or after the repair work is completed.

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.
