Notice of temporary deviation from regulations. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Commander, Eleventh Coast Guard District, has issued a temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the Henry Ford Drawbridge across the Cerritos Channel, mile 4.8 at Los Angeles, CA. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position during the deviation period. The deviation is necessary for the bridge owner, the Port of Los Angeles, to perform critical repairs which involve modifications to allow for the inspection of the bridge’s counterweight wire ropes. DATES: This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. on November 6, 2006 to 4 p.m. on December 8, 2006. ADDRESSES: Materials referred to in this document are available for inspection or copying at Commander (dpw), Eleventh Coast Guard District, Building 50–2, Coast Guard Island, Alameda, CA 94501–5100, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Sulouff, Chief, Bridge Section, Eleventh Coast Guard District, telephone (510) 437–3516. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 5, 2006, The Port of Los Angeles requested a temporary change to the operation of the Henry Ford Drawbridge, mile 4.8, Cerritos Channel, at Los Angeles, CA. The Henry Ford Drawbridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 7 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. Presently, the drawspan is maintained in the fully open position, except when a train is crossing or for maintenance. When the drawspan is in the closed position, it opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.147(b). Navigation on the waterway is mainly commercial traffic, servicing ships entering and leaving the port. The Port of Los Angeles requested the drawbridge be allowed to remain closed to PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 navigation, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. on November 6, 2006 to 4 p.m. on December 8, 2006. During this time, critical repairs will be made which involves modifications to allow for the inspection of the bridge’s counterweight wire ropes. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary rule were raised. While the bridge is in the closed-to-navigation position, vessels can transit around Terminal Island to reach the other side of the bridge. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(c), this work will be performed with all due speed in order to return the bridge to normal operation as soon as possible. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: October 24, 2006. J.A. Breckenridge, Rear Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard, Commander, Eleventh Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On Friday, August 11, 2006, the FAA proposed to amend Part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class D 
airspace at Ft. Riley, KS (71 FR 46130). The proposal was to establish 
a Class D airspace area to provide controlled airspace for flight 
operations due to the establishment of an air traffic control tower. 
Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. A 
comment was received regarding the size of Class D airspace area. The 
size of the Class D airspace area is determined by FAA Order 7400.2F 
Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, Chapter 17, Section 2. Class 
D Airspace Standards.

The Rule

    This notice amends Part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR part 71) by establishing a Class D airspace area extending upward 
from the surface to and including 3,600 feet above sea level within a 
3.7-mile radius of Fort Riley, Marshall Army Airfield, KS. The 
establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action 
necessary. The intended effect of this action is to provide controlled 
airspace for flight operations at Fort Riley, Marshall Army Airfield, 
KS. The are will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
    Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the 
earth are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2006, and 
effective September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. of the same Order. The Class D airspace designation listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this regulation--(1) is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' 
under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 
1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation 
as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this a routine matter 
that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is

economic impact on a substantial
