SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The US2 Bridge, across Lake Champlain, mile 91.8, between North Hero Island and Grand Isle (South Hero Island), Vermont, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 13 feet at mean high lake elevation and 16 feet at mean low lake elevation. The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.993(b). The owner of the bridge, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), requested a temporary deviation to facilitate rehabilitation repairs at the bridge. Under this temporary deviation, in effect from October 22, 2007 through February 1, 2008, the US2 Bridge need not open for the passage of vessel traffic. The US2 Bridge rarely opens during the time period this temporary deviation will be in effect. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at all times. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the bridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Should the bridge maintenance authorized by this temporary deviation be completed before the end of the effective period published in this notice, the Coast Guard will rescind the remainder of this temporary deviation, and the bridge shall be returned to its normal operation schedule. Notice of the above action shall be provided to the public in the Local Notice to Mariners and the Federal Register, where practicable. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dated: October 4, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Union Pacific Railroad Company requested a temporary deviation for the Clinton Railroad Drawbridge, mile 518.0, at Clinton, Iowa across the Upper Mississippi to open on signal if at least 24 hours advance notice is given in order to facilitate needed bridge maintenance and repairs. The Clinton Railroad Drawbridge currently operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, which states the general requirement that drawbridges shall open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request to open is given in accordance with the subpart. In order to facilitate the needed bridge work, the drawbridge must be kept in the closed-to-navigation position.

The Clinton Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation position, provides a vertical clearance of 18.7 feet above normal pool. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft. These interests will not be significantly impacted due to the reduced navigation in winter months. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is taking final action to approve revisions to the Kentucky State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Kentucky Department of Air Quality (KDAQ) on September 6, 2005. The revisions include modifications to Kentucky’s Administrative Regulations (KAR) Title 401, Chapters 50:045 and 63:005, which pertain to Kentucky’s performance testing and open burning provisions, respectively. These revisions are part of Kentucky’s strategy to meet the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) by reducing emissions of volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides, which are the precursors to ozone formation. Open burning creates smoke that contains fine particles (PM2.5) and precursors to ozone. The approved rules are intended to help control levels of PM2.5 and ozone precursors that contribute to high ozone and PM2.5 levels. This action is being taken pursuant to section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This final rule also addresses a comment made on EPA’s proposed rulemaking for this action published on January 17, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: This rule will be effective November 16, 2007. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket Identification No. EPA–R04–OAR– 2005–KY–0004. All documents in the docket are listed on the www.regulations.gov Web site.
