All interested parties are advised that the Coast Guard Fifth District Commander has received a proposal from the North Carolina Department of Transportation, with plans for modifying a
existing drawbridge over a United States waterway.

WATERWAY AND LOCATION: Alligator River, Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Mile 84.2, in Columbia, North Carolina.

CHARACTER OF WORK: The proposed project is to replace the 2.83 mile long 2-lane swing-span drawbridge with a two-lane high-rise fixed bridge on a new alignment of approximately
2,000 feet north of the existing bridge. The objective of the project is to replace a bridge that is structurally deficient and undergoing significant deterioration, due to its age, and to avoid having to carry out
thorough maintenance of obsolete mining machinery.

The existing drawbridge has a horizontal clearance of 100 feet on each side of the swing span and a vertical clearance of 14 feet above mean high water in the closed position and unlimited vertical clearance in the open position. The replacement bridge will be a fixed bridge with a horizontal clearance of 140 feet and a vertical clearance of 65 feet above mean high water.

A copy of Preliminary Public Notice D05PPN-02-2022, which describes the proposal in detail, can be obtained by calling (757) 398-6222 or by visiting https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/ ?pageName=pnBridges . Comments on this proposal should be sent to the address indicated in the notice no later than April 01, 2022.
