    • LNM: FEC RR Bridge on Openings Deviation, Apr 24-June 17, St. Johns River, Jacksonville, FL


      This cantankerous aging railway bridge in the heart of downtown Jacksonville requires constant upkeep and has plagued boaters with its numerous maintenance lockdowns and its closed vertical clearance of 5ft (!!) severely restricting river activities on the popular St. Johns.

      FLORIDA – ST JOHNS RIVER – FLORIDA EAST COAST RAILWAY – RAIL BRIDGE: Bridge Repairs
      Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) is authorized to temporarily deviate from drawbridge operation regulation 33 CFR 117.325(b) that governs the FEC St. Johns River Railroad Bridge across the St. Johns River, mile 24.9, at Jacksonville, Florida. Under this temporary deviation, the FEC St. Johns River RR Bridge is authorized to remain in the closed to navigation position between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the following days:
      – April 24, 25, 28 and 29, 2020
      – May 8, 9, 12, 13, 29 and 30, 2020
      – June 2, 3, 12, 13, 16 and 17, 2020
      This deviation is necessary for the maintenance to the main trunnion and link pin bearings. Vessels able to pass without an opening may do so at any time. During non-working hours the bridge will operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.325(b). The drawbridge shall return to its regular operating schedule, 33 CFR 117.325(b), at the end of the designated time period. We are approving this request under the provisions of 33 CFR 117.35. For waterways questions, contact USCG Sector Jacksonville Waterways Management Office, MST2 Rory Boyle at 904-714-7661, email: Rory.C.Boyle@uscg.mil.    Ref: LNM 13-20 Chart: 11491

    • AIWA E-News March 2020

      Cruisers Net is proud to be a member of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association whose lobbying work is crucial to keeping the Waterway navigable. Your membership dollars directly support their vital work. Please join and encourage your boating neighbors to do likewise, regardless of their homeport.

       

       
      Pictured above clockwise AIWA & Representatives Buddy Carter (GA) and Representative Greg Murphy (NC)
      AIWA Goes to Capitol Hill
      On March 11-12, AIWA Executive Director Brad Pickel and board members met in Washington, D.C. to advocate for increased funding for AIWW maintenance projects. The AIWA team participated in fourteen meetings with members and staff in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Our meetings turned out to be on the cusp of the shutdown for COVID-19 and member offices closed to in-person meetings beginning March 13th

      In the President’s FY21 budget only $6.254 million was included for the waterway which is $16.293 million less than the final FY20 funding. Our goal was to secure Congressional support for $75 million each in three Operations & Maintenance funding pots for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps).  The AIWW is eligible to receive allocations from the three funding pots to conduct additional work above the original $6.254 million in the Administration’s budget, and in FY20 we received an additional $15 million from these funding pots.

      To support our request the AIWA team presented the annual operations & maintenance needs fact sheet for the waterway and a letter of support which Congressional members could submit to the Senate and House Appropriations Committees on our behalf. We requested the House members work together to send a bi-partisan, multi-state delegation letter as it has been highly successful in previous years and we encouraged each Senate office to send their own individual letter since we don’t currently have a delegation letter sponsor in the Senate. Although we do not receive copies of the Senate letters, we do receive a final copy of the House delegation letter and we are working to increase the number of signatories for the letter.

      In 2019, we were able to secure support from 16 House offices last year in six states – NJ, VA, NC, SC, GA and FL. This year, we were able to secure support in 19 offices in the same six states. This effort continues to grow in support along the way and is a great opportunity to highlight the value of Marine Highway 95 as a transportation system. The final version of the FY21 House Appropriations Letter Request with the co-signer list is available here.  Additionally, we would like to share a recent article from Boating Industry highlighting the AIWA D.C. trip by clicking here.

      Looking forward, COVID-19 has slowed the FY21 Appropriations process. All attention in Washington is focused on the three recovery bills and both the Senate and House are now in recess. We are unclear when the process will begin again while the ability to hold hearings addressing appropriations bills is in currently halted. 

      Some Good News: The AIWW has been deemed a mission critical waterway by the Corps and work continues for the staff at this time as plans for new projects are being developed and dredging is underway in North Carolina! We continue to work on your behalf to follow these projects and connect with our partners at the Corps to develop new projects in hopes that production will continue in a safe manner. We also continue to support our Congressional partners with federal appropriations and we will report more to you as the process continues.

      The American Waterways Operators has launched a dedicated COVID-19 webpage containing information and resources to help mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus and guide the U.S. tugboat, towboat and barge industry in operating safely while continuing to serve the American people during the pandemic.

      The National Marine Manufacturers Association has called on the federal government to take action and help marine manufacturers respond to COVID-19. In addition, NMMA is aligned with organizations including the National Association of Manufacturers, US Chamber of Commerce, the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable and others to ensure our industry’s voice is heard.

      The Waterway Guide, Dockwa, AGLCA and Snag-A-Slip are reporting the changing status of access to marinas, services and docks while the United States is developing a response to the spread of COVID-19. The information listed here comes from boaters, marinas, partners, the U.S. Coast Guard, our staff of on-the-water boating editors, and internal teams of experts. Waterway Guide is committed to providing boaters with up-to-date content for captains and crew to make informed decisions regarding their vessel and safety. WWG will continue to publish and update news about affected facilities and waterways until normal conditions resume.

    • LNM: Shoaling Surveyed, Lockwoods Folly Inlet, NC AICW Statute Mile 321


      Lockwoods Folly Crossing, a Cruisers Net Problem Stretch, was just dredged January to March, 2020 and the immediate need to relocate buoys 47 and 47A demonstrates the requirement for constant vigilance when navigating Lockwoods Folly/Waterway Intersection.

      NC – LOCKWOODS FOLLY INLET – SHOALING
      UPDATED INFORMATION. Cape Fear River – Little River Buoy 47 (LLNR 40225) in Lockwoods Folly Crossing was moved to position 33-55-17.921 N, 078-14-03.157 W to better mark shoaling. Shoaling exists in Lockwoods Folly Inlet to a channel depth of 4 feet at mean low water throughout the inlet and to a depth of 2 feet at mean low water in the crossing near Buoy 47A (LLNR 40230). Most recent USACE survey shows depths as low as 4 feet mean low water throughout the inlet and a depth as low as 2 feet in the entrance at mean low water. Mariners are advised to use extreme caution while navigating this area. NC BNM 186-19 Chart 11534
