Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for March 26, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the Main Branch of the Chicago River in Chicago, IL. This temporary safety zone is intended to restrict vessels and persons from a portion of the Main Branch of the Chicago River during construction operations involving a helicopter. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect workers, the surrounding public, and vessels from the hazards associated with the construction operations. This rule is effective from 7 a.m. on March 29, 2014, until 7 p.m. on March 30, 2014. It will be enforced intermittently between these dates.

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to establish special local regulations on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Bucksport, South Carolina during the Outboard Drag Boat Association (ODBA) dragging on the Waccamaw, a series of high-speed boat races. The event is scheduled to take place from 10:30 a.m. on June 21, 2014, through 8:30 p.m. on June 22, 2014. Approximately 50 high-speed race boats are anticipated to participate in the races. These special local regulations are necessary to provide for the safety of life and property on navigable waters of the United States during the event. These special local regulations would temporarily restrict vessel traffic in a portion of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Persons and vessels that are not participating in the races would be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the restricted area unless authorized by the Captain of the Port Charleston or a designated representative.
