Notice of Proposed Rulemaking: Shipping Safety Fairways Along the Atlantic Coast

As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices, or those notices that may impact a large segment of our readers. To provide comments for the public record, follow the Federal Register link for each individual notice. Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

The Coast Guard seeks comments regarding the possible establishment of shipping safety fairways (“fairways”) along the Atlantic Coast of the United States identified in the Atlantic Coast Port Access Route Study. This potential system of fairways is intended to ensure that traditional navigation routes are kept free from obstructions that could impact navigation safety.

Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before August 18, 2020.

You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-2019-0279 using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at https://www.regulations.gov. See the “Public Participation and Request for Comments” portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further instructions on submitting comments.

For information about this document call or email George Detweiler, Coast Guard; telephone 202-372-1566, email George.H.Detweiler@uscg.mil.

  1. For clarification, the fairway coordinates included in our Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that is presently open for comment are exactly the same as the original recommendations that were published in the ACPARS, and subsequently posted in the Federal Register.
