Navigation Data Received
Not required. The U.S. Coast Guard already has this information for each of the 31 potential waterway crossings.
Issued Navigation Determination
This preliminary determination provides the minimum navigational clearances accepted for bridges across each waterway.
The project sponsor has not submitted any Bridge Permit applications. Applications will be required for any new (or modified existing) permanent or temporary pipeline or highway bridges across navigable waterways.
Application Deemed Complete
An application(s) is deemed complete if all application materials have been received. This includes everything listed in the Coast Guard Bridge Permit Application Guide such as plan sheets, NEPA documentation, WQC, CZM, and other applicable requirements.
Publication of Public Notice
A Coast Guard public notice for navigation is issued for each proposed bridge once plan sheets are available and navigation clearances requirements are identified. A 30-day comment period follows each public notice issued. The number of proposed bridges determines how many public notices will need to be issued for this project. If sufficient information is available for several projects, the Coast Guard will issue public notices with several projects listed in one notice to save time. The Coast Guard typically issues public notices within 30 days after receiving an application, which must include adequate plan sheets. Applications are anticipated in Winter 2018.
Permit Decision Rendered
Each Coast Guard bridge permit decision will be made for each of the waterway crossings 180 days after the application complete date. These decisions are depending upon receiving from the applicant complete applications for each bridge crossing, including a set of plan sheets for each bridge.
