Closed-to-navigation, each day from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., from September 8, 2008 to September 11, 2008, except vessel openings will be provided with at least two hours advance notice given to the bridge operator at (757) 545–1512 or via marine radio on Channel 13. 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard published a final rule 
concerning long range information and tracking of certain ships to 
report identifying and position data electronically on April 29, 2008 
(73 FR 23310). That rule became effective on May 29, 2008, and contains 
implementation dates starting December 31, 2008. See 33 CFR 169.220.
    The Coast Guard described collection of information provisions in 
both the final rule and in the LRIT notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) published October 3, 2007 (72 FR 56600). In the NPRM, in

[[Page 49101]]

rule, we also requested comments on its collection of information 
provisions.
    The rule's Sec.  169.215 of 33 CFR requires ships to transmit 
position reports using long range identification and tracking (LRIT) 
equipment that has been type-approved by their Administration. Its 
Sec.  169.230 of the same title requires ships' LRIT equipment to 
transmit position reports at 6-hour intervals unless a more frequent 
interval is requested remotely by an LRIT Data Center. And its Sec.  
169.245 requires a ship's master to inform his or her Flag 
Administration without undue delay if LRIT equipment is switched off or 
fails to operate. The master must also make an entry in the ship's 
logbook that states his or her reason for switching the LRIT equipment 
off, or an entry that the equipment has failed to operate, and the 
period during which the LRIT equipment was switched off or non-
operational.
    The LRIT NPRM and final rule are available electronically through 
the docket (USCG-2005-22612) at www.regulations.gov. On August 12, 
2008, under 44 U.S.C. 3505(c), OMB approved the collection of

169.230, and 169.245 of the LRIT final rule under OMB control number
