A. Basis and Purpose
On April 14, 2014, we published a temporary deviation based on the City of Stillwater, Minnesota's request entitled “Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulation; request for comments” in the Federal Register (79 FR 20784). The temporary deviation concerned performing a functional review of drawspan operations during the navigation season by allowing the bridge to be operated on an altered opening schedule Monday through Friday (except Federal Holidays) for approximately 5 months. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
On April 16, 2014, a public meeting regarding this temporary deviation based on a request by the City of Stillwater was held.
After the public meeting, on April 23, 2014, the City of Stillwater rescinded their request for the temporary deviation; therefore, the Coast Guard is canceling the scheduled deviation.
