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 determination is based on the navigation data available for each waterway and informs NEPA alternatives because it provides the navigation clearance requirements for each bridge across a navigable waterway.
The project sponsor has not submitted any Bridge Permit applications.
Application Deemed Complete
An application is deemed complete if all application materials have been received.
Publication of Public Notice
A Coast Guard public notice 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.
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.
