The Commandant or District Commander will approve plans and issue permits authorizing
bridges across navigable waters, in cases where the application therefor is submitted
after the commencement or completion of the bridges subject to the following rules:
Approval will be limited to those cases where the necessary primary authority, State
or Federal as the case may be, validly existed, when the work was innocently constructed,
and where the work will not unreasonably interfere with navigation. Upon issuance of the permit, applicant will be informed that the law contemplates
prior approval and that in the future plans must be submitted in ample time for their
consideration by the Commandant or District Commander before construction is begun.
