June 22, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for June 22, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Morrison Bridge, mile 12.8, and the Hawthorne Bridge, mile 13.1, both crossing the Willamette River at Portland, OR. The deviation is necessary to accommodate Portland’s Red, White, and Blues Run/Walk event. The deviation allows the bridges to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. on July 5, 2015 to allow for the safe movement of event participants across the bridges. This deviation is effective from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. on July 5, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a safety zone in Cathlamet, WA. This safety zone is necessary to help ensure the safety of the maritime public during a fireworks display and will do so by prohibiting unauthorized persons and vessels from entering the safety zones unless authorized by the Sector Columbia River Captain of the Port or his designated representatives. This rule is effective on July 18, 2015 from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

PROPOSED RULE: The Corps of Engineers is proposing to establish a permanent danger zone in waters of the Atlantic Ocean south of Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Camp Pendleton, VA will provide an economical, safe training environment for individual live fire exercises, and collective units to conduct the minimum requirements for weapons qualification. The proposed danger zone will increase the level of safety to the public in the vicinity of the live firing operations by providing additional notice of the hazards present. Written comments must be submitted on or before July 22, 2015.
