SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: California Department of Transportation has 
requested a temporary change to the operation of the Tower Drawbridge, 
mile 59.0, over Sacramento River, at Sacramento, CA. The vertical lift 
bridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 30 feet above 
Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. The draw operates 
as required by 33 CFR 117.189(a). Navigation on the waterway is 
commercial and recreational.
    The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position 
from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on October 23, 2016, to allow the community 
to participate in the Golden Arches Run event. This temporary deviation 
has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the 
proposed temporary deviation were raised.
    Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may 
do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies 
and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The 
Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our 
Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating 
schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their 
transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

    Dated: October 17, 2016.
D.H. Sulouff,
District Bridge Chief, Eleventh Coast Guard District.
