BILLING CODE 4910–15–P VerDate jul<14>2003 18989 SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is removing drawbridge operation regulations for seven bascule bridges within the Seventh Coast Guard District. The seven bascule bridges were removed and the regulations governing their operation are no longer needed. DATES: This rule is effective April 12, 2005. Documents referred to in this rule are available for inspection or copying at the office of the Seventh Coast Guard District, Bridge Branch, 909 SE 1st Avenue, Room 432, Miami, Florida 33131, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: Good Cause We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM. Public comment is not necessary since the purpose of the affected regulations is to regulate the opening and closing of bridges that have been removed. For the same reasons under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds good cause exists for making this rule effective in less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Background and Purpose The State of Florida (Department of Transportation) has removed five bascule bridges, removing the need for their associated regulations. The following bridges have been removed: a. Brooks Memorial (SE 17th Street) bascule span bridge across the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, mile 1065.9 at Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida.
