requesting a waiver of a bridge permit under Title 33 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 115.70; Advance approval for bridges. Advance approval waterways are those that are navigable in law, but not actually navigated by other than small boats. The Commandant of the Coast Guard has given advance approval to the construction or repair of bridges across such waterways.
