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 work, the drawbridge must be kept in the closedto-navigation position. This deviation allows the bridge to intermittently remain in the closed-to-navigation position for periods of up to 1 hour and 30 minutes in duration, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., July 1, 2008, through July 8, 2008, and from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., July 16, 2008, through July 22, 2008.

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. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge shall return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period.

Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) and 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM and for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. The emergent and dynamic nature of the event did not allow previous notice. Publishing a NPRM would be contrary E:\FR\FM\11JNR1.SGM 11JNR1
