Background

On July 27, 2016, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Special Local Regulation; Little Annemessex River and Somers Cove, Crisfield, MD” in the Federal Register (81 FR 17774). The rulemaking concerned the Coast Guard's proposal to establish temporary special local regulations on specified waters of Little Annemessex River and Somers Cove at Crisfield, MD, effective from 5:30 a.m. on September 17, 2016 until 10 a.m. on September 18, 2016. The regulated area included all navigable waters of the Little Annemessex River and Somers Cove, from shoreline to shoreline, bounded to the north by a line drawn from the eastern shoreline of Janes Island at latitude 37°58′39″ N., longitude 075°52′05″ W., and thence eastward to the Crisfield City Dock at latitude 37°58′39″ N., longitude 075°51′50″ W., and bounded to the south by a line drawn from Long Point on Janes Island at latitude 37°58′12″ N., longitude 075°52′42″ W., and thence eastward to Hammock Point at latitude 37°57′58″ N., longitude 075°51′58″ W., located at Crisfield, MD.
