The structure, a source of much con- troversy for the last several years, was proposed to be built at Mile 62.8 near Dayton, locally known as Lambert Bend. The request for an extension of time was made to the Com- mander of the Thirteenth Coast Guard District. According to the public notice, the proposed bridge will provide a horizontal clearance of 295 feet measured at right angles to the direction of the river, between piers at the principal span. The vertical clearance will be 68 feet at mid-span at low water eleva- tion of 65.8 MSL. There will be a minimum vertical clearance of 60 feet over the entire span. The center span vertical clearance will be 28.8 feet-for a river eleva- tion of 105 MSL corresponding to the December, 1964, flood. A permit for the work was is- sued in 1969 by the Coast Guard and will expire shortly unless re- newed. This application concerns granting additional time to per- form the work and also allows for a reappraisal of the needs of navigation and whether the pro- posed bridge will adequately aReet those needs. The decision by the Coast Guard as to whether or not to approve a time extension for the construc. tion rests, according to the public notice "primarily upon the effects of the bridge and causeway on navigation. However, other perti- nent factors will be given care- ful consideration. Voters in both Marion and Yam- hill counties approved a bond measure in 1968 to build the bridge with the help of matching funds from the Economic Devel- opment Administration within the US Dept. of Commerce. The EDA has prepared a draft EIS, a copy of which may be viewed in the offices of the Aids to Navigation Branch, L3th Coast Guard District, 618 2nd Ave., Se- attle, Wash~ 98104, as well as the offices of Yambill County E~gin- eer and Marion County Director of Public Works. Interested parties are requested to express their views, in writing, upon suitability of location and adequacy of navigational clearanc- es, giving sufficient detail to es- tablish a clear understanding of the reasons for support or oppo- sition. Comments may be sent to the Office of the Commander, 13th Coast Guard District, Attention: Aids to Navigation Branch. They must be sent by .Sept. 30, 1974.
