A. Basis and Purpose
On November 22, 2013, we published a temporary deviation entitled “Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Upper Mississippi River, Rock Island, IL” in the Federal Register (78 FR 69995). The temporary deviation concerned a change from the operating schedule that governs the Rock Island Railroad and Highway Drawbridge across the Upper Mississippi River, mile 482.9, at Rock Island, Illinois. The bridge owner was scheduled to perform preventive maintenance and critical repairs that are essential to the continued safe operation of the drawbridge. The work was scheduled in the winter, when the impact on navigation was minimal, instead of scheduling the work at other times in the year, when river traffic is prevalent. The deviation allowed the bridge to be maintained in the closed-to-navigation position for 77 days. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
This deviation is cancelled as of January 22, 2014, due to work scheduling issues during the winter months.
