On July 25, 2012, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Safety Zone; Gilmerton Bridge Center Span Float-in, Elizabeth River; Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Chesapeake, Virginia” in the Federal Register (77 FR 43557). The rulemaking concerned establishing a safety zone on the navigable waters of the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Chesapeake, VA, in order to provide for the safety of life on navigable waters during the Gilmerton Bridge Center Span Float-in and bridge construction of span placement.


The proposed rule is being withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances in the construction timeline of the Center Span, which has caused a 5 week delay in the project.

Authority: We issue this notice of withdrawal under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 44 U.S.C. 1505(a)(3), and 33 CFR 1.05-1.

Dated: July 17, 2012.

Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Captain of the Port Hampton Roads.
