Appendix A to Part 117--Drawbridges Equipped With Radiotelephones

    Authority: 33 U.S.C. 499; 49 CFR 1.46; 33 CFR 1.05-1(g); section 
117.255 also issued under the authority of Pub. L. 102-587, 106 Stat. 
5039.

    Source: CGD 82-025, 49 FR 17452, Apr. 24, 1984, unless otherwise 
noted.

    Editorial Note: Nomenclature changes to part 117 appear at 63 FR 
35529, June 30, 1998.

                     Subpart A--General Requirements

Sec. 117.1  Purpose.

    This subpart prescribes general requirements relating to the use and 
operation of drawbridges across the navigable waters of the United 
States.

    Note: The primary jurisdiction to regulate drawbridges across the 
navigable waters of the United States is vested in the Federal 
Government. Laws, ordinances, regulations, and rules which purport to 
regulate these bridges and which are not promulgated by the Federal 
Government have no force and effect.

Sec. 117.3  Applicability.

    The provisions of this subpart not in conflict with the provisions 
of Subpart B apply to each drawbridge.

    Note: For all of the requirements applicable to a drawbridge listed 
in Subpart B, one must review the requirements in Subpart A and 
Secs. 117.51 through 117.99 of Subpart B, as well as the requirements in 
Subpart B applicable to the particular drawbridge in question.

Sec. 117.4  Definitions.

    Certain terms used in this part are defined in this section.
    Appurtenance. The term ``appurtenance'' means an attachment or 
accessory extending beyond the hull or superstructure that is not an 
integral part of the vessel and is not needed for a vessel's piloting, 
propelling, controlling, or collision avoidance capabilities.
    Lowerable. The term ``lowerable'' means the nonstructural vessel 
appurtenance can be mechanically or manually lowered and raised again. 
The term ``lowerable'' also applies to a nonstructural vessel 
appurtenance which can be modified to make the item flexible, hinged, 
collapsible, or telescopic such that it can be mechanically or manually 
lowered and raised again. Failure to make the modification is considered 
equivalent to refusing to lower a lowerable nonstructural appurtenance 
that is not essential to navigation. Examples of appurtenances which are 
considered to be lowerable include, but are not limited to, fishing 
outriggers, radio antennae, television antennae, false stacks, and masts 
purely for ornamental purposes. Examples of appurtenances which are not 
considered to be lowerable include, but are not limited to, radar 
antennae, flying bridges, sailboat masts, piledriver leads, spud frames 
on hydraulic dredges, drilling derricks' substructures and buildings, 
cranes on drilling or construction vessels, or other items of permanent 
and fixed equipment.
    Nonstructural. The term ``nonstructural'' means that the item is not 
rigidly fixed to the vessel and is thus susceptible to relocation or 
alteration.
    Not essential to navigation. The term ``not essential to 
navigation'' means

[[Page 522]]

the nonstructural vessel appurtenance does not adversely affect the 
vessel's piloting, propulsion, control, or collision avoidance 
capabilities when in the lowered position.

[CGD 91-059, 59 FR 16563, Apr. 7, 1994]

Sec. 117.5  When the draw shall open.

    Except as otherwise required by this subpart, drawbridges shall open 
promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request to open is 
given in accordance with this subpart.

    Editorial Note: For Federal Register citations relating to temporary 
deviations from the regulatory provisions in Sec. 117.5, see the List of 
CFR Sections Affected, which appears in the Finding Aids section of the 
printed volume and on GPO Access.

Sec. 117.7  General duties of drawbridge owners and tenders.

    (a) Drawbridge owners and tenders shall operate the draw in 
accordance with the requirement in this part.
    (b) Except for drawbridges not required to open for the passage of 
vessels, owners of drawbridges shall ensure that:
    (1) The necessary drawtenders are provided for the safe and prompt 
opening of the draw;
    (2) The operating machinery of the draw is maintained in a 
serviceable condition; and.
    (3) The draws are operated at sufficient intervals to assure their 
satisfactory operation.

Sec. 117.9  Delaying opening of a draw.

    No person shall unreasonably delay the opening of a draw after the 
signals required by Sec. 117.15 have been given.

    Note: Trains are usually controlled by the block method. That is, 
the track is divided into blocks or segments of a mile or more in 
length. When a train is in a block with a drawbridge, the draw may not 
be able to open until the train has passed out of the block and the 
yardmaster or other manager has ``unlocked'' the drawbridge controls. 
The maximum time permitted for delay is defined in Subpart B for each 
affected bridge. Land and water traffic should pass over or through the 
draw as soon as possible in order to prevent unnecessary delays in the 
opening and closure of the draw.

Sec. 117.11  Unnecessary opening of the draw.

    No vessel owner or operator shall--
    (a) Signal a drawbridge to open if the vertical clearance is 
sufficient to allow the vessel, after all lowerable nonstructural vessel 
appurtenances that are not essential to navigation have been lowered, to 
safely pass under the drawbridge in the closed position; or
    (b) Signal a drawbridge to open for any purpose other than to pass 
through the drawbridge opening.

[CGD 91-059, 59 FR 16563, Apr. 7, 1994]

Sec. 117.15  Signals.

    (a) General. (1) The operator of each vessel requesting a drawbridge 
to open shall signal the drawtender and the drawtender shall acknowledge 
that signal. The signal shall be repeated until acknowledged in some 
manner by the drawtender before proceeding.
    (2) The signals used to request the opening of the draw and to 
acknowledge that request shall be sound signals, visual signals, or 
radiotelephone communications described in this subpart.
    (3) Any of the means of signaling described in this subpart 
sufficient to alert the party being signaled may be used.
    (b) Sound signals. (1) Sound signals shall be made by whistle, horn, 
megaphone, hailer, or other device capable of producing the described 
signals loud enough to be heard by the drawtender.
    (2) As used in this section, ``prolonged blast'' means a blast of 
four to six seconds duration and ``short blast'' means a blast of 
approximately one second duration.
    (3) The sound signal to request the opening of a draw is one 
prolonged blast followed by one short blast sounded not more than three 
seconds after the prolonged blast. For vessels required to be passed 
through a draw during a scheduled closure period, the sound signal to 
request the opening of the draw during that period is five short blasts 
sounded in rapid succession.
    (4) When the draw can be opened immediately, the sound signal to 
acknowledge a request to open the draw is one prolonged blast followed 
by one

[[Page 523]]

short blast sounded not more than 30 seconds after the requesting 
signal.
    (5) When the draw cannot be opened immediately, or is open and shall 
be closed promptly, the sound signal to acknowledge a request to open 
the draw is five short blasts sounded in rapid succession not more than 
30 seconds after the vessel's opening signal. The signal shall be 
repeated until acknowledged in some manner by the requesting vessel.
    (c) Visual signals. (1) The visual signal to request the opening of 
a draw is--
    (i) A white flag raised and lowered vertically; or
    (ii) A white, amber, or green light raised and lowered vertically.
    (2) When the draw can be opened immediately, the visual signal to 
acknowledge a request to open the draw, given not more than 30 seconds 
after the vessel's opening signal, is--
    (i) A white flag raised and lowered vertically;
    (ii) A white, amber, or green light raised and lowered vertically; 
or
    (iii) A fixed or flashing white, amber, or green light or lights.
    (3) When the draw cannot be opened immediately, or is open and must 
be closed promptly, the visual signal to acknowledge a request to open 
the draw is--
    (i) A red flag or red light swung back and forth horizontally in 
full sight of the vessel given not more than 30 seconds after the 
vessel's opening signal; or
    (ii) A fixed or flashing red light or lights given not more than 30 
seconds after the vessel's opening signal.
    (4) The acknowledging signal when the draw cannot open immediately 
or is open and must be closed promptly shall be repeated until 
acknowledged in some manner by the requesting vessel.
    (d) Radio telephone communications. (1) Radiotelephones may be used 
to communicate the same information provided by sound and visual 
signals.

    Note: Call signs and radio channels for drawbridges with 
radiotelephones are listed in Appendix A to this part.

    (2) The vessel and the drawtender shall monitor the frequency used 
until the vessel has cleared the draw.
    (3) When radiotelephone contact cannot be initiated or maintained, 
sound or visual signals under this section shall be used.

[CGD 82-025, 49 FR 17452, Apr. 24, 1984, as amended by CGD 82-025, 50 FR 
11366, Mar. 21, 1985; CGD 84-022, 51 FR 16308, May 2, 1986; CGD 96-026, 
61 FR 33664, June 28, 1996]

Sec. 117.17  Signalling for contiguous drawbridges.

    When a vessel must past two or more drawbridges close together, the 
opening signal is given for the first bridge. After acknowledgment from 
the first bridge that it will promptly open, the opening signal is given 
for the second bridge, and so on until all bridges that the vessel must 
pass have been given the opening signal and have acknowledged that they 
will open promptly.

Sec. 117.19  Signalling when two or more vessels are approaching a 
          drawbridge.

    When two or more vessels are approaching the same drawbridge at the 
same time, or nearly the same, time, whether from the same or opposite 
directions, each vessel shall signal independently for the opening of 
the draw and the drawtender shall reply in turn to the signal of each 
vessel. The drawtender need not reply to signals by vessels accumulated 
at the bridge for passage during a scheduled open period.

Sec. 117.21  Signalling for an opened drawbridge.

    When a vessel approaches a drawbridge with the draw in the open 
position, the vessel shall give the opening signal. If no acknowledgment 
is received within 30 seconds, the vessel may proceed, with caution, 
through the open draw.

Sec. 117.23  Installation of radiotelephones.

    (a) When the District Commander deems it necessary for reasons of 
safety of navigation, the District Commander may require the 
installation and operation or a radiotelephone on or near a drawbridge.
    (b) The District Commander gives written notice of the proposed 
requirement to the bridge owner.

[[Page 524]]

    (c) All comments the owner wishes to submit shall be submitted to 
the District Commander within 30 days of receipt of the notice under 
paragraph (b) of this section.
    (d) If, upon consideration of the comments received, the District 
Commander determines that a radiotelephone is necessary, the District 
Commander notifies the bridge owner that a radiotelephone shall be 
installed and gives a reasonable time, not to exceed six months, to 
install the radiotelephone and commence operation.

Sec. 117.24  Radiotelephone installation identification.

    (a) The Coast Guard authorizes, and the District Commander may 
require the installation of a sign on drawbridges, on the upstream and 
downstream sides, indicating that the bridge is equipped with and 
operates a VHF radiotelephone in accordance with Sec. 117.23.
    (b) The sign shall give notice of the radiotelephone and its calling 
and working channels--
    (1) In plain language; or
    (2) By a sign consisting of the outline of a telephone handset with 
the long axis placed horizontally and a vertical three-legged lightning 
slash superimposed over the handset. The slash shall be as long 
vertically as the handset is wide horizontally and normally not less 
than 27 inches and no more than 36 inches long. The preferred calling 
channel should be shown in the lower left quadrant and the preferred 
working channel should be shown in the lower right quadrant.

    Note: It is recommended that the radiotelephone sign be similar in 
design to the Service Signs established by the Federal Highway 
Administration (FHWA) in U.S. Road Symbol Signs using Reflective Blue 
and Reflective White colors. Color and design information is available 
from the District Commander of the Coast Guard District in which the 
bridge is located.

[CGD 84-022, 51 FR 16308, May 2, 1986]

Sec. 117.31  Operation of draw for emergency situations.

    (a) When a drawtender is informed by a reliable source that an 
emergency vehicle is due to cross the draw, the drawtender shall take 
all reasonable measures to have the draw closed at the time the 
emergency vehicle arrives at the bridge.
    (b) When a drawtender receives notice, or a proper signal as 
provided in Sec. 117.15 of this part, the drawtender shall take all 
reasonable measures to have the draw opened, regardless of the operating 
schedule of the draw, for passage of the following, provided this 
opening does not conflict with local emergency management procedures 
which have been approved by the cognizant Coast Guard Captain of the 
Port:
    (1) Federal, State, and local government vessels used for public 
safety;
    (2) Vessels in distress where a delay would endanger life or 
property;
    (3) Commercial vessels engaged in rescue or emergency salvage 
operations; and
    (4) Vessels seeking shelter from severe weather.

[CGD 91-016, 58 FR 20, Jan. 4, 1993]

Sec. 117.33  Closure of draw for natural disasters or civil disorders.

    Drawbridges need not open for the passage of vessels during periods 
of natural disasters or civil disorders declared by the appropriate 
authorities unless otherwise provided for in Subpart B or directed to do 
so by the District Commander.

Sec. 117.35  Operations during repair or maintenance.

    (a) When operation of the draw must deviate from the regulations in 
this part for scheduled repair or maintenance work, the drawbridge owner 
shall request approval from the District Commander at least 30 days 
before the date of the intended change. The request shall include a 
brief description of the nature of the work to be performed and the 
times and dates of requested changes. The District Commander's decision 
is forwarded to the applicant within five working days of the receipt of 
the request. If the request is denied, the reasons for the denial are 
forwarded with the decision.
    (b) When the draw is rendered inoperative because of damage to the 
structure or when vital, unscheduled repair or maintenance work shall be 
performed without delay, the drawbridge

[[Page 525]]

owner shall immediately notify the District Commander and give the 
reasons why the draw is or should be rendered inoperative and the 
expected date of completion of the repair or maintenance work.
    (c) All repair or maintenance work under this section shall be 
performed with all due speed in order to return the draw to operation as 
soon as possible.
    (d) If the operation of the draw will be affected for periods of 
less than 60 days, the regulations in this part will not be amended. 
Where practicable, the District Commander publishes notice of the 
temporary deviations from the regulations in this part in the Federal 
Register and Local Notices to Mariners. If operation of the draw is 
expected to be affected for more than 60 days, the District Commander 
publishes temporary regulations covering the repair period.

Sec. 117.37  Opening or closure of draw for public interest concerns.

    (a) For reasons of public health or safety or for public functions, 
such as street parades and marine regattas, the District Commander may 
authorize the opening or closure of a drawbridge for a specified period 
of time.
    (b) Requests for opening or closure of a draw shall be submitted to 
the District Commander at least 30 days before the proposed opening or 
closure and include a brief description of the proposed event or other 
reason for the request, the reason why the opening or closure is 
required, and the times and dates of the period the draw is to remain 
open or closed.
    (c) Approval by the District Commander depends on the necessity for 
the opening or closure, the reasonableness of the times and dates, and 
the overall effect on navigation and users of the bridge.

Sec. 117.39  Closure of draw due to infrequent use.

    Upon written request by the owner or operator of a drawbridge, the 
District Commander may, after notice in the Federal Register and 
opportunity for public comment, permit the draw to be closed and 
untended due to infrequency of use of the draw by vessels. The District 
Commander may condition approval on the continued maintenance of the 
operating machinery.

Sec. 117.41  Maintenance of draw in fully open position.

    The draw may be maintained in the fully open position to permit the 
passage of vessels and drawtender service discontinued if the District 
Commander is notified in advance. The draw shall remain in the fully 
open position until drawtender service is restored or authorization 
under Sec. 117.39 is given for the draw to remain closed and untended.

Sec. 117.43  Changes in draw operation requirements for regulatory 
          purposes.

    In order to evaluate suggested changes to the drawbridge operation 
requirements, the District Commander may authorize temporary deviations 
from the regulations in this part for periods not to exceed 90 days. 
Notice of these deviations is disseminated in the Local Notices to 
Mariners and published in the Federal Register.

[CGD-92-015b, 58 FR 46081, Sept. 1, 1993]

Sec. 117.45  Operation during winter season in the Great Lakes area.

    (a) The Commander, Ninth Coast Guard District, may determine that 
drawbridges located in the Ninth Coast Guard District need not open 
during the winter season when general navigation is curtailed, unless a 
request to open the draw is given at least 12 hours before the time of 
the intended passage.
    (b) Notice of these determinations is disseminated in Local Notices 
to Mariners and other appropriate media. Notices indicate--
    (1) The name and location of the bridge affected;
    (2) The period of time covered; and

Sec. 117.49  Process of violations.

    (a) Complaints of alleged violations under this part are submitted 
to the District Commander of the Coast Guard District in which the 
drawbridge is located.
    (b) Penalties for violations under this part are assessed and 
collected under Subpart 1.07 of Part 1 of this chapter.

                    Subpart B--Specific Requirements

Sec. 117.51  Purpose.

    This subpart prescribes specific requirements relating to the 
operation of certain drawbridges.

    Note: The drawbridges under this subpart are listed by the waterway 
they cross and by the state in which they are located. Waterways are 
arranged alphabetically by state. The drawbridges listed under a 
waterway are generally arranged in order from the mouth of the waterway 
moving upstream. The drawbridges on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway 
are listed from north to south and on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway 
from east to west.

Sec. 117.53  Applicability.

    (a) The requirements in this subpart apply to the bridges listed and 
are in addition to, or vary from, the general requirements in Subpart A.
    (b) A requirement in this subpart which varies from a general 
requirement in Subpart A supersedes the general requirement.
    (c) All other general requirements in Subpart A not at variance 
apply to the bridges listed in this subpart.
    (d) The draws of a number of the bridges listed in this subpart need 
not open for the passage of vessels during certain periods, however, 
this does not preclude the bridge owner from directing the drawtender to 
open the draw during these periods.

Sec. 117.55  Posting of requirements.

    (a) The owner of each drawbridge under this subpart, other than 
removable span bridges, shall ensure that a sign summarizing the 
requirements in this subpart applicable to the bridge is posted both 
upstream and downstream of the bridge. The requirements to be posted 
need not include those in Subpart A or Secs. 117.51 through 117.99.
    (b) The signs shall be of sufficient size and so located as to be 
easily read at any time from an approaching vessel.
    (c) If advance notice is required to open the draw, the signs shall 
also state the name, address, and telephone number of the person to be 
notified.

Sec. 117.57  Advance notice.

    Owners and tenders of drawbridges requiring advance notice to open 
shall use all reasonable means to open the draw at the requested time 
and give due regard to the possibility that a brief delay may be 
experienced by the vessel giving the advance notice.

Sec. 117.59  Special requirements due to hazards.

    For the duration of occurrences hazardous to safety or navigation, 
such as floods, freshets, and damage to the bridge or fender system, the 
District Commander may require the owner of an operational drawbridge 
listed in this subpart to have the bridge attended full time and open on 
signal.

Sec. 117.123  Arkansas Waterway-Automated Railroad Bridges.

    (a) Across the Arkansas River, the draw of the Cotton Belt Railroad 
(Rob Roy) Bridge, Mile 67.4, is maintained in the closed position and is 
remotely operated. The following signals shall be used:
    (1) The opening signal from the vessel for each of these bridges is 
three short blasts.
    (2) The acknowledging signal is flashing white lights visible 
upstream and downstream. When the operator of the vessel sights the 
acknowledging signal, one prolonged blast shall be sounded.
    (3) This signal is acknowledged by the bridge controller when the 
draw is to open by changing the flashing white lights to continuous 
white lights, and sounding one blast on a horn. When the span is fully 
raised to a maximum clearance of 52 feet, the navigation lights at mid 
channel change from red to green, indicating that the draw is ready for 
passage.
    (4) If the draw cannot open, flashing amber warning lights are 
flashed and four blasts are sounded, indicating that a train is 
approaching or that maintenance work is in progress.
    (5) The vessel shall acknowledge that there is a delay by sounding 
four short blasts.

[[Page 528]]

    (6) When the draw opens (after the train crosses or when maintenance 
work permits), the amber lights are turned off, the continuous white 
lights turned on, and one blast sounded, to indicate the draw is ready 
for passage.
    (7) The vessel acknowledges with one blast and, after the draw is 
fully open, may proceed through the draw.
    (8) When the vessel clears the draw, the mid channel navigation 
light changes from green to red, the amber warning lights will flash, 
and, after one minute, the draw lowers and locks.
    (b) The draws of the Junction Railroad Bridge at mile 118.7 and the 
Baring Cross Railroad Bridge at mile 119.6, Arkansas River, at Little 
Rock, are maintained in the closed position and are remotely operated. 
The draw of the Rock Island Railroad Bridge at mile 118.2, Arkansas 
River, at Little Rock, is maintained in the open position. Use the 
following procedures to request opening of these bridges when necessary 
for transit;
    (1) Normal Flow Procedures. Any upbound or downbound vessel which 
requires opening the draw of any of these bridges shall establish 
contact by radiotelephone with the remote drawbridge operator on VHF-FM 
Channel 13 in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The remote drawbridge 
operator will advise the vessel whether the requested span can be 
immediately opened and maintain constant contact with the vessel until 
the requested span has opened and the vessel passage has been completed. 
If any or all of the drawbridges cannot be opened immediately, the 
remote drawbridge operator will notify the calling vessel and provide an 
estimated time for individual drawbridge openings.
    (2) High Velocity Flow Procedures. The area from mile 118.2 to mile 
125.4 is a regulated navigation area (RNA) as described in 33 CFR 
165.817. During periods of high velocity flow, which is defined as a 
flow rate of 70,000 cubic feet per second or greater at the Murray Lock 
and Dam, mile 125.4, downbound vessels which require that the draw of 
these three bridges be opened for unimpeded passage shall contact the 
remote drawbridge operator on VHF-FM Channel 13 either before departing 
Murray Lock and Dam, or before departing the mooring cells at Mile 121.5 
to ensure that the Rock Island, Junction, and Baring Cross Railroad 
drawbridges are opened. The remote drawbridge operator shall immediately 
respond to the vessel's call, ensure that all three drawbridges are open 
for pasage, and ensure that they remain in the open positon until the 
downbound vessel has passed through each drawbridge. If a closed 
drawbridge cannot be opened immediately for unimpeded passage in 
accordance with 33 CFR 163.203, the remote drawbridge operator will 
immediately notify the downbound vessel and provide an estimated time 
for drawbridge openings. Upbound vessels shall request openings in 
accordance with the normal flow procedures as set forth above. The 
remote drawbridge operator shall keep all approaching vessels informed 
of the position of the drawbridge spans.
    (c) The draw of the Arkansas Missouri Railroad Bridge, Mile 300.8 
Arkansas River at Van Buren, and the Missouri Pacific Railroad 
Drawbridge, Mile 7.5 Arkansas Waterway at Benzal, are maintained in the 
open position with a minimum vertical clearance of 52 feet except as 
follows:
    (1) When a train approaches either bridge, amber lights attached to 
the bridge begin to flash and an audible signal on the bridge sounds. At 
the end of 10 minutes, the amber light continues to flash; however, the 
audible signal stops and the draw lowers and locks if the photoelectric 
boat detection system detects no obstruction under the span. If there is 
an obstruction, the draw opens to its full height until obstruction is 
cleared.
    (2) After the train clears the bridge, the draw opens to its full 
height, the amber flashing light stops, and the mid channel lights 
change from red to green, indicating the navigation channel is open for 
the passage of vessels.

Sec. 117.393  Illinois Waterway.

    (a) The draw of the automated Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad 
bridge, mile 88.8 at Beardstown, Illinois, operates as follows:

[[Page 553]]

    (1) The draw is normally maintained in the fully open position, 
displaying a green light to indicate that vessels may pass.
    (2) When a vessel is approaching and the draw is in the open 
position, contact shall be established by radiotelephone with the remote 
operator to assure that the draw remains open until passage is complete.
    (3) When a vessel is approaching and the draw is in the closed 
position, contact shall be established by radiotelephone with the remote 
operator. If the draw cannot be opened immediately, alternate flashing 
red lights are displayed. If the draw can be opened immediately, 
flashing amber lights are displayed.
    (4) When a train approaches the bridge and the draw is in the open 
position, the operator shall activate alternate flashing red lights on 
top of the draw, sound four short blasts, and scan the river on radar to 
determine whether any vessel is approaching the bridge. The remote 
operator shall also broadcast that the draw is closing. If a vessel or 
vessels are approaching the bridge within one mile, as determined by 
radar scanning, response to radio broadcast, or electronic detector, the 
flashing red lights shall be changed to flashing amber and the operator 
shall keep the draw in the fully open position until the vessel or 
vessels have cleared the bridge. If no vessel is approaching the bridge 
or is beneath the draw, the draw may be lowered and locked in place.
    (5) After the train has cleared the bridge, the draw shall be raised 
to its full height and locked in place, the red flashing lights stopped, 
and the draw lights changed from red to green.
    (b) The draw of the Union Pacific railroad bridge, Mile 151.2, at 
Pekin, Illinois, is operated by a remote operator located at the Union 
Pacific offices in Chicago, Illinois, as follows:
    (1) The draw is normally maintained in the fully open position, 
displaying green mid-channel lights to indicate that the span is fully 
open.
    (2) The draw is equipped with the following:
    (i) A radiotelephone link direct to the remote operator;
    (ii) A horn for sound signals;
    (iii) Eight high intensity amber warning lights, oriented upstream 
and downstream, with two secured to the uppermost chord and two secured 
to the lowermost chord of the drawspan;
    (iv) A radar antenna on the lower portion of the drawspan capable of 
scanning one mile upstream and one mile downstream; and
    (v) Infrared scanners located on the upstream and downstream ends of 
the channel span piers, to detect vessels or other obstructions under 
the bridge.
    (3) The remote operator shall maintain a radiotelephone watch for 
mariners to establish contact as they approach the bridge to ensure that 
the draw is open or that it remains open until passage is complete.
    (4) When a train approaches the bridge and the draw is in the open 
position, the remote operator initiates a ten minute warning period 
before closing the bridge. During this warning period, the amber lights 
begin flashing and a signal of four short blasts sounds on a horn. The 
four-blast signal will repeat after a five second interval. A 
synthesized-voice message is broadcast over the radiotelephone as 
follows: ``The Union Pacific railroad bridge at Mile 151.2, Illinois 
River, will close to navigation in ten minutes.'' The announcement is 
repeated every two minutes, counting down the time remaining until 
closure.
    (5) At the end of the ten minute warning period, the remote bridge 
operator scans under the bridge using infrared detectors and the 
upstream and downstream approaches to the bridge using radar to 
determine whether any vessels are under or are approaching the bridge. 
If any vessels are under or are approaching the bridge within one mile 
as determined by infrared or radar scanning or by a radiotelephone 
response, the remote operator shall not close the bridge until the 
vessel or vessels have cleared the bridge.
    (6) If no vessels are under or approaching the bridge, the mid-
channel navigation lights will change from green to red, the horn signal 
of four short blasts will sound, twice, and the radiotelephone message 
will change to: ``The Union Pacific Railroad Bridge at Mile 151.2, 
Illinois River, is closed to navigation.'' The message will repeat

[[Page 554]]

every two minutes and the amber lights will continue to flash until the 
bridge is fully reopened.
    (7) If the infrared scanners detect a vessel or other obstruction 
under the bridge before the drawspan is fully lowered and locked, the 
closing sequence is stopped, automatically, and the drawspan is raised 
to its fully open position until the channel is clear. When obstruction 
has cleared the navigation span, the remote operator confirms that the 
channel is clear, and reinitiates the ten-minute warning cycle.
    (8) After the train has cleared the bridge, the remote operator 
initiates the lift span raising cycle. When the draw is raised to its 
full height and locked in place, the flashing lights stop and the mid-
channel navigation lights change from red to green. The synthesized 
voice announcement broadcasts at two minute intervals for ten minutes 
that the bridge is reopened to navigation.
    (c) The draws of the McDonough Street Bridge, mile 287.3; Jefferson 
Street bridge, mile 287.9; Cass Street bridge, mile 288.1; Jackson 
Street bridge, mile 288.4; and Ruby Street bridge, mile 288.7; all of 
Joliet, shall open on signal, except that they need not open from 7:30 
a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through 
Saturday.
    (d) The drawspan of the Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railway bridge, 
mile 290.1 at Lockport, Illinois, is operated by remote operator located 
at the Elgin, Joliet & Eastern offices in East Joliet, Illinois as 
follows:
    (1) The drawspan is normally maintained in the fully open to 
navigation position displaying green center span navigation lights to 
indicate that the drawspan is fully open.
    (2) The bridge is equipped with the following:
    (i) A radiotelephone link direct to the remote operator;
    (ii) A radar antenna on top of the drawspan capable of scanning the 
river, one mile upstream and one mile downstream;
    (iii) Infrared boat detectors under the drawspan, to allow the 
remote bridge operator to detect vessels under the drawspan;
    (iv) Electronic motion detectors under the drawspan to allow the 
remote bridge operator to detect vessel movement under the drawspan;
    (v) A siren for sound signals; and
    (vi) Red and green center span navigation lights.
    (3) The remote bridge operator shall maintain a 24 hour VHF marine 
radio watch for mariners to establish contact as they approach the 
bridge to ensure that the drawspan is open or that it remains open until 
passage of river traffic is complete.
    (4) When rail traffic approaches the bridge, and the drawspan is in 
the open position, the remote bridge operator initiates a one minute 
warning period before closing the drawspan. During this warning period, 
the remote operator shall broadcast at least twice, via marine radio, 
that: ``The drawspan of the EJ&E Railroad bridge will be lowered in one 
minute.'' A siren on the bridge sounds for 20 seconds, to warn anyone on 
or under the bridge that the drawspan will be lowered.
    (5) If a vessel is approaching the bridge upbound or, departing the 
Lockport Lock and Dam at mile 291.1, downbound, with intentions of 
passing through the drawspan, they shall respond to the remote bridge 
operators' marine radio broadcast, or initiate radio contact, indicating 
their proximity to the bridge and requesting an opening of the drawspan 
or that the drawspan remain open until the vessel passes. If any 
approaching vessel is detected or if a radiotelephone response is 
received, the remote operator shall not close the drawspan until the 
vessel or vessels have cleared the bridge.
    (6) At the end of the one minute warning period, if no river traffic 
is approaching or under the drawspan, the remote bridge operator may 
begin lowering the drawspan. Navigation lights located at the center of 
the drawspan change from green to red when the drawspan is not in the 
fully open to navigation position. The drawspan takes approximately 90 
seconds to lower.
    (7) If the presence of a vessel or other obstruction is discovered 
approaching or under the drawspan, during the lowering sequence, before 
the drawspan is fully lowered and locked, the drawspan

[[Page 555]]

shall be stopped and raised to the fully open position. When the vessel 
or obstruction has cleared the drawspan, the remote operator shall 
confirm that the channel is clear and reinitiate the one minute warning 
cycle before lowering the drawspan.
    (8) If no marine traffic is present the drawspan may be lowered and 
seated. When the drawspan is lowered and locked in the closed to 
navigation position, the remote bridge operator periodically broadcasts, 
via marine radio, that: ``The drawspan of the EJ&E Railroad bridge is 
closed to navigation.''
    (9) Failure of the radar system, radio telephone system, infrared 
boat detectors or electronic motion sensors shall prevent lowering the 
drawspan from the remote location.
    (10) when rail traffic has cleared the bridge, the remote bridge 
operator shall raise the drawspan to the fully open to navigation 
position. When the drawspan is raised and in the fully open to 
navigation position, the remote bridge operator broadcasts, at least 
twice, via marine radio, that: ``The drawspan of the EJ&E Railroad 
bridge is open to navigation.'' The center drawspan navigation lights 
change from red to green when the drawspan is fully open to navigation.
    (e) The draws of the McDonough Street Bridge, mile 287.3; Jefferson 
Street Bridge, mile 287.9; Cass Street Bridge, mile 288.1; Jackson 
Street Bridge, mile 288.4; all of Joliet, shall open on signal, except 
that they need not open from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 5:30 
p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Ruby Street Bridge shall remain in the 
open to navigation position from March 12, 2003, through 7:30 a.m. on 
July 18, 2003.

Sec. 117.484  Pass Manchac.

    The draw of the Canadian National/Illinois Central Railroad 
automated bridge, mile 6.7, at Manchac, operates as follows:
    (a) The draw is not constantly manned and the bridge will normally 
be maintained in the open position, providing 56 feet vertical clearance 
above mean high tide to the raised tip of the bascule span for one-half 
the channel, and unlimited vertical clearance for the other half.
    (b) Railroad track circuits will detect an approaching train and 
initiate bridge closing warning broadcasts over marine radio and over 
the Public Address (PA) system six (6) minutes in advance of the train's 
arrival. Navigation channel warning lights will be lit, and 
photoelectric (infrared) boat detectors will monitor the waterway 
beneath the bridge for the presence of vessels. The waterway approaches 
to the bridge will be monitored by closed circuit TV (CCTV) cameras.
    (c) Activation of the warning broadcasts also activates a marine 
radio monitor in the Mays Yard (New Orleans switch yard). The yardmaster 
will continuously monitor marine radio broadcasts on the normal and 
emergency marine radio channels throughout the warning period and at all 
times the bridge is closed. The yardmaster will communicate with 
waterway users via the marine radio, if necessary.
    (d) At the end of warning period, if no vessels have been detected 
by the boat detectors, and no interruptions have been performed by the 
yardmaster based on his monitoring of the marine radio and the CCTV, the 
bridge lowering sequence will automatically proceed.
    (e) Upon passage of the train, the bridge will automatically open. 
Railroad track circuits will initiate the automatic bridge opening and 
closing sequences. (Estimated duration that the bridge will remain 
closed for passage of rail traffic is 10 to 12 minutes.) The bridge will 
also be manually operable from two locked trackside control locations 
(key releases) on the approach spans, one on each side of the movable 
span.
    (f) The yardmaster will be provided with a remote EMERGENCY STOP 
button which, if pressed, will stop the bridge operation, interrupt the 
lowering sequence, and immediately return the bridge to the open 
position. The yardmaster will utilize this control feature in the event 
a vessel operator issues an urgent radio call to keep the waterway open 
for immediate passage of the vessel.

    The draw of the Front Street bridge, mile 0.1 at Chester, shall open 
on signal if at least 24 hours notice is given.

Sec. 117.903  Darby Creek.

    (a) The draw of the CONRAIL Railroad Bridge, mile 0.3, at Essington, 
will operate as follows:
    (1) The owner of this bridge on this waterway shall provide and keep 
in good legible condition two board gages painted white with black 
figures, nine inches high to indicate the vertical clearance under the 
closed draw at all stages of the tide. The gages shall be so placed on 
the bridge that they are plainly visible to operators of vessels 
approaching the bridge either up or downstream.
    (2) Trains shall be controlled so that any delay in opening of the 
draw shall not exceed ten minutes except as provided in Sec. 117.31(b). 
However, if a train moving toward the bridge has crossed the home signal 
for the bridge before the signal requesting opening of the bridge is 
given, the train may continue across the bridge and must clear the 
bridge interlocks before stopping.
    (3) From May 15 through October 15, the draw shall be left in the 
open position at all times and will only be lowered for the passage of 
trains and to perform periodic maintenance authorized in accordance with 
subpart A of this part.
    (4) The bridge will be operated by the bridge/train controller at 
the Delair Railroad Bridge in Delair, New Jersey.
    (5) Before the bridge closes for any reason, an on-site crewmember 
will observe the waterway for approaching craft, which will be allowed 
to pass. The on-site crewmember will then communicate with the off-site 
bridge/train controller at the Delair Railroad Bridge either by radio or 
telephone, requesting the off-site bridge/train controller to lower the 
bridge.
    (6) The bridge shall only be lowered from the remote site if the on-
site crewmember's visual inspection shows there are no vessels in the 
area and the infrared channel sensors are not obstructed.
    (7) While the CONRAIL Railroad Bridge is moving from the full open 
to the full closed position, the off-site bridge/train controller will 
maintain constant surveillance of the navigational channel using 
infrared sensors to ensure no conflict with maritime traffic exists. In 
the event of failure or obstruction of the infrared channel sensors, the 
off-site bridge/train controller will stop the bridge and return the 
bridge to the open position. In the event of loss of radio or telephone 
communications with the on-site crewmember, the off-site bridge/train 
controller will stop the bridge and the bridge return to the open 
position.
    (8) When the draw cannot be operated from the remote site, a bridge 
tender must be called to operate the bridge in the traditional on-site 
manner.
    (9) The CONRAIL Railroad channel traffic lights will change from 
flashing green to flashing red anytime the bridge is not in the full 
open position.
    (10) During downward span movement, the channel traffic lights will 
change from flashing green to flashing red, the horn will sound two 
times, followed by a pause, and then two repeat blasts until the bridge 
is seated and locked down.
    (11) When the rail traffic has cleared, the off-site bridge/train 
controller at the Delair Railroad Bridge will sound the horn five times 
to signal the draw of the CONRAIL Railroad Bridge is about to return to 
its full open position.
    (12) During upward span movement, the channel traffic lights will 
change from flashing green to flashing red, the horn will sound two 
times, followed by a pause, and then sound repeat blasts until the 
bridge is in the full open position. In the full open position, the 
channel traffic lights will then turn from flashing red to flashing 
green.
    (13) From October 16 through May 14, the draw shall open on signal 
if at least 24 hours notice is given by telephone at (856) 231-7088 or 
(856) 662-8201. Operational information will be provided 24 hours a day 
by telephone at (856) 231-7088 or (856) 662-8201.

Sec. 117.1035  Columbia River.

    (a) The term drawtender, as used in this section means the operator 
of the drawspan, whether that person may be a train crew member, 
maintenance person, or an officially designated drawtender.
    (b) The draw of the semi-automated Union Pacific railroad bridge 
(Kalan Bridge), mile 323.4, near Kennewick, Washington, is normally 
maintained in the fully open position with no drawtender in attendance. 
A radar beacon (RACON) is located at the center of the drawspan. The 
RACON operates only when the drawspan is fully open,

[[Page 617]]

by responding with the Morse letter ``K'' to X-band radar signals. When 
necessary to close the drawspan for the passage of a train or for 
maintenance, a drawtender shall be dispatched to operate the draw from 
either of the remote control stations located at the ends of the bridge. 
Operation of the bridge shall be as follows:
    (1) The drawtender shall broadcast a radio message over Channel 16-
VHF to all vessels in the vicinity that the Kalan Bridge will be closing 
in two minutes. If after two minutes no response is received, the 
drawtender shall broadcast a message over Channel 13-VHF that the Kalan 
Bridge is closing. Both messages shall be broadcast twice.
    (2) Prior to activating the closing sequence the drawtender shall 
visually inspect the waterway for marine traffic approaching the bridge. 
The closing sequence shall not be activated until after marine traffic 
has cleared the bridge.
    (3) When the closing sequence is activated, the following functions 
occur automatically: The RACON is deactivated, red strobe lights on the 
lift towers and on the channel piers start flashing, a downward pointing 
arrow consisting of amber colored lights is displayed from the center of 
the drawspan and a recorded message is broadcast over Channel 13-VHF 
advising that the Kalan Bridge is closed to river traffic. The radio 
message is repeated every five minutes, the red lights continue to flash 
and the downward pointing arrow is displayed, until the lift span 
returns to the up and locked position. At the end of the ten minutes, a 
horn sounds for 30 seconds, the span begins closing and the centerspan 
navigation lights turn from green to red. The horn sounds for 30 seconds 
at 10 minute intervals, until the lift span returns to the up and locked 
position.
    (4) If for any reason during the closing sequence a danger is posed 
to marine traffic, the closing sequence shall be stopped and the bridge 
reopened until the threat of danger has passed.
    (5) If the bridge is to be temporarily closed for maintenance or for 
purposes other than the passage of a train, the drawtender shall 
continually monitor Channels 13 and 16 for calls from approaching 
vessels, and respond to inquiries from vessels about the closure.
    (6) After a train has cleared the bridge, the following functions 
occur automatically: The drawspan returns to the fully open and locked 
position, the RACON is reactivated, the arrow display and the red strobe 
lights are extinguished, the red centerspan navigation lights return to 
green and a recorded message is broadcast over Channel 13-VHF that the 
Kalan Bridge is open for marine traffic.
    (7) Bridge status information may be obtained by calling the 
commercial telephone number posted at the drawspan of the bridge.
    (c) The draw of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad bridge at 
mile 328.0, between Pasco and Kennewick, shall open on signal from 8 
a.m. to 4 p.m. At all other times the draw shall open on signal if at 
least 2 hour's notice is given through the General Yardmaster, Pasco, 
Washington.

    (2) In the event of an emergency declared by the Cowlitz County 
Department of Emergency Services, the bridge shall be capable of opening 
upon two hours notice. Notification of emergencies and requests for 
openings during emergencies are initiated through the Cowlitz County 
Department of Emergency Services.
    (3) The operating machinery of the draw shall be maintained in a 
serviceable condition and the draw shall be opened and closed at 
intervals frequent enough to make certain that the machinery is in 
proper order for satisfactory operation.
