    • LNM: New Opening Schedule, US 17 Bridge, Ashley River, Charleston, SC off AICW Statute Mile 469

      US 17 Bridge over the Ashley is not a Waterway bridge and its schedule will affect only those wanting to explore the upper Ashley River and whose air draft can clear the 51ft fixed vertical clearance bridge immediately downriver of the twin US 17 bascule bridge. These modifications, which limit openings to between 9AM and 4PM, will be greatly appreciated by James Island motorists such as yours truly!

      SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is modifying the operating schedule that governs the US17 Highway Bridges (Ashley River Bridges), across the Ashley River, miles 2.4 and 2.5, in Charleston, SC. This rule requires a bridge tender to be present during daytime hours only from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily for on signal openings. All other times a 12 hour advanced notification is required. This modification provides relief to vehicle traffic congestion with minimal effect on navigation.
      DATES: This rule is effective January 16, 2018
      ADDRESSES: To view documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, go to Type USCG-2016-0776 in the “SEARCH” box and click “SEARCH.” Click on Open Docket Folder on the line associated with this rulemaking.
