SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Caltrans requested a temporary change to the operation of the Tower Drawbridge, mile 59.0, across the Sacramento River, at Sacramento, California. The Tower Drawbridge provides a vertical clearance of 30 feet above Mean High Water in the closed-to-navigation position. The drawspan opens on signal from May 1 through October 31 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from November 1 through April 30 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At all other times the drawspan shall open on signal if at least four hours notice is given, as required by 33 CFR 117.189. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closedto-navigation position from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. June 2, 2008 through June 6, 2008; June 16, 2008 through June 20, 2008; June 27, 2008; June 30, 2008 through July 2, 2008; July 9, 2008 through July 11, 2008; and July 14, 2008. Special provisions have been made to accommodate commercial waterway traffic. The drawspan shall open for vessels at 6 p.m. on each Friday during the deviation period and at 6 p.m. on June 3, 2008 and June 5, 2008. These closures will allow an unimpeded alternate route for rush hour commuter traffic, across the Tower Drawbridge, during major construction work on Interstate 5 through downtown Sacramento. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. Adjustments to the schedule were VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:56 Jun 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 made to minimize impacts to commercial waterway traffic. There is no anticipated levee maintenance during this deviation period. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels that can transit the drawspan, while in the closed-to-navigation position, may continue to do so at any time. In the event of an emergency the drawspan can be opened once road traffic is cleared. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge 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. Dated: May 29, 2008. J.E. Long, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Acting Commander, Eleventh Coast Guard District. [FR Doc.

Mr. Michael Lieberum, Bridge Branch, Seventh Coast Guard District, at 305– 415–6744. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The consultant Reynolds, Smith & Hills CS, Inc. representing Florida Department of Transportation, the bridge owner, has requested a temporary deviation from the regulations governing the operations of the Davie Boulevard (SW Twelfth Street) Bridge, New River (South Fork), mile 0.9, at Fort Lauderdale, FL, to conduct minor repairs and painting. This bridge has a vertical clearance of 21 feet in the closed position at mean high water. The operating schedule for this bridge is published in 33 CFR 117.351(a) and requires the bridge to open on signal, except that from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays the bridge is allowed to remain closed to navigation. This deviation will allow the bridge to be closed to navigation from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday; effective on June 1, 2008 and running through June 30, 2008. This deviation will allow a horizontal clearance reduction to 25 feet between the maintenance barge that will be used as a working platform and the bridge fender system from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. The U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Department of Transportation and the Marine Industries Association of South Florida have determined that these dates and times should have the least impact on navigation. Vessels requiring less than 21 feet of vertical clearance and less than 25 feet of horizontal clearance shall be passed at any time. There is no alternate route for vessels in this location. The contractor has assured the Coast Guard that they can open the bridge within 15 minutes in the event of an emergency. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: Implementation: Effective September 11, 2008, mailers must prepare pallets, containing presort bundles with all addresses facing up, under revised DMM 705.8.5.6. We encourage mailers to make these changes as soon as possible, but no later than September 11, 2008. Administrative practice and procedure, Postal Service. Accordingly, 39 CFR part 111 is amended as follows: I PART 111—[AMENDED] The Postal Service is revising the mailing standards requiring mailers to place presort bundles on pallets with the addresses facing up. DATES: Effective Date: September 11, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Gunther at 202–268–7208. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Postal Service is in the process of implementing technological changes to automate delivery sequencing for flatsize mail, through the deployment of the Flats Sequencing System (FSS). FSS will sort flat-size mailpieces into delivery sequence, increasing the efficiency of letter carriers by reducing time in sorting mail, and allowing delivery to begin earlier in the day. Placement of presort bundles on pallets with the address side up is needed to improve efficiencies in today’s processing environment and for automated preparation and induction for FSS in the future. In today’s processing applications, this new standard will aid in validating that bundles are placed on the correct pallet, improving the manual distribution of these bundles. Comments Received: We received one comment on the proposal, from a commercial printer. The commenter recommended we revise the proposal to allow one or two columns of bundles to be placed on their edge to maximize the ‘‘footprint’’ of mail that can be placed on a pallet. Pallets containing bundles placed on their edge will not maintain their integrity as well as pallets containing bundles that all lie flat. Allowing bundles on their edge would also lessen our ability to read the address side of a bundle, which is one objective of this standard change. In addition, we plan to use automated preparation stations to support FSS, which require bundles to lie flat on pallets. Therefore, we have decided not to adopt the recommendation. dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:56 Jun 05, 2008 Jkt 214001 1.
