Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Paragraph 2.B(3) of the service bulletin. Notice of proposed rulemaking; withdrawal. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is withdrawing its notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the proposed change to the regulations that govern the operation of the Centerville Turnpike (SR 170) Bridge, at AIWW mile 15.2, across the Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal in Chesapeake, Virginia. The requested change would have allowed the bridge to open on signal every hour on the half hour from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., year round. The withdrawal is based on further investigation indicating that this change would not improve the schedule for both roadway and waterway users. DATES: The proposed rule published on April 6, 2007 (72 FR 17065), is withdrawn on May 22, 2008. ADDRESSES: The docket for this withdrawn rulemaking is available for inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility (M–30), U.S. Department of Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Brazier, Bridge Management Specialist, Fifth Coast Guard District, at (757) 398–6422. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 6, 2007, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation E:\FR\FM\22MYP1.SGM 22MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 100 / Thursday, May 22, 2008 / Proposed Rules Regulations; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW), Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal, Chesapeake, VA’’ in the Federal Register (72 FR 17065). This rulemaking would have allowed the bridge to open on signal every hour on the half hour from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., year round. Withdrawal The City of Chesapeake, which owns and operates this swing-type bridge, had requested a change to the existing regulations in an effort to improve the travel for mariners to arrive at the Great Bridge (S168) Bridge across the Albemarle and Chesapeake, at AIWW mile 12.0 at Chesapeake, (approximately three miles away). The Coast Guard conducted a lengthy and thorough investigation with both roadway and waterway users. Our investigation revealed that the proposal would not improve the transit of waterway users because it would impose possibly hazardous and unnecessary delays on slower vessels, such as sailboats and trawlers, that are probably most of the transient vessels needing openings at the bridge. Additionally, all of the comments received during the comment period were in favor of keeping the current schedule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On April 6, 2007, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled ``Drawbridge Operation

[[Page 29723]]

Regulations; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW), Albemarle and 
Chesapeake Canal, Chesapeake, VA'' in the Federal Register (72 FR 
17065). This rulemaking would have allowed the bridge to open on signal 
every hour on the half hour from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., year round.

Withdrawal

    The City of Chesapeake, which owns and operates this swing-type 
bridge, had requested a change to the existing regulations in an effort 
to improve the travel for mariners to arrive at the Great Bridge (S168) 
Bridge across the Albemarle and Chesapeake, at AIWW mile 12.0 at 
Chesapeake, (approximately three miles away).
    The Coast Guard conducted a lengthy and thorough investigation with 
both roadway and waterway users. Our investigation revealed that the 
proposal would not improve the transit of waterway users because it 
would impose possibly hazardous and unnecessary delays on slower 
vessels, such as sailboats and trawlers, that are probably most of the 
transient vessels needing openings at the bridge. Additionally, all of 
the comments received during the comment period were in favor of 
keeping the current schedule.

Authority

    This action is taken under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 499; 33 CFR 
1.05-1; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.
