  • Bridge Protective Systems 1. When considering an application for a bridge permit, the Coast Guard may require a bridge protective system to provide navigation safety. 2. In the permit application, the applicant must consider the possible need for a bridge protective system that would promote safer navigation through the bridge. 3. The need for a bridge protective system is based on present and future navigation transiting the proposed bridge site. 4. When required, the applicant must submit a plan for a bridge protective system that includes the following information: a. A description of the proposed type of bridge protective system (include a description of the construction methods and materials from the standpoint of navigation safety). b. The dimensions and minimum clear horizontal distance normal to the channel axis measured between the most restrictive parts of the bridge protective system. 5. When changes in navigation affect the safety of navigation and the bridge structure, the Coast Guard District Commander may require the installation of bridge protective systems at the bridge owner’s expense. 6. A Vessel Impact Assessment shall be completed to determine the type of bridge protective system required for the bridge, if applicable.
  • Bridge Navigational Lighting 1. Bridges across waterways, which support nighttime navigation, are required to display navigational lights in accordance with Part 118 of Title 33, CFR. 2. Approval of navigational lights and other required signals must be obtained, prior to construction, from the Coast Guard District Commander (Bridge Office) with jurisdiction over the bridge project area. 3. The permittee is responsible for maintaining proper temporary navigational lighting and other such markings, as prescribed, on bridges during construction. Permanent lighting must be maintained on the bridges after the completion of construction. 4. The District Commander may exempt bridges over waterways with no significant nighttime navigation from the lighting or other signal requirements. 5. For the best service and ease of maintenance, lighting installations should incorporate the recommended features outlined below in accordance with 33 CFR Part 118. 6. If the applicant considers bridge lighting during the bridge design phase, it can help avoid future difficulties. 7. Since the bridge lighting requirements in 33 CFR Part 118 are specified as performance standards, the applicant should ensure the lighting equipment proposed for a specific bridge project meets these standards by contacting the local Coast Guard District Bridge Office. 8. Any person required by 33 CFR Part 118 to maintain lights and other signals upon any bridge or abutment over or in the navigable waters of the United States who fails or refuses to maintain such lights and other signals, or to obey any of the lawful rules and regulations relating to the same is subject to a penalty as provided in 14 United States Code (U.S.C.) 85. 9. No person shall obstruct or interfere with any lights or signals maintained in accordance with the regulations prescribed in this part. Any person violating the provisions of 33 CFR § 118.10 shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and be subject to a fine for each offense. Each day during which such violation shall continue shall be considered a new offense. 10. Additional information can be found in the Coast Guard Bridge Lighting and Other Signals guide found at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg551/.
