A. Basis and Purpose
On September 21, 2012, we published a temporary deviation entitled “Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Old River, Orwood CA” in theFederal Register(77 FR 58491). The temporary deviation concerned the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) Drawbridge across Old River, mile 10.4, at Orwood, CA. The deviation was to allow the bridge owner to perform essential mechanical repairs while the bridge remained in the closed-to-navigation position from 8 a.m. October 22, 2012 to 4 p.m. on October 26, 2012. This deviation from the operating regulations was authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
The temporary deviation is canceled due the unexpected unavailability of an alternative path for navigation during the proposed times and dates of the repair work.
