The Captree State Parkway Bridge, mile 30.7, across the State Boat Channel, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 29 feet at mean high water and 30 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.799(i).
The waterway is transited by seasonal recreational traffic.
New York State DOT, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to perform painting and steel repairs.
Under this temporary deviation, the Captree State Parkway Bridge will not open for marine traffic from September 6, 2016 to December 16, 2016.
Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass.
The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways through our Local Notice and Broadcast to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operations can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
