SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 145 Street Bridge, across the Harlem River at mile 2.8, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 25 feet at mean high water and 30 feet at mean low water. The existing regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.789(c)(1). The owner of the bridge, the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), requested this temporary deviation to facilitate mechanical bridge maintenance. Habitual users of the waterway normally can transit under the 145 Street Bridge without requesting a bridge opening due to the size of the vessel traffic that frequently transits this waterway and the ample vertical clearance provided by the bridge in the closed position. Under this temporary deviation the 145 Street Bridge may remain in the closed position from October 13, 2008 through October 18, 2008. 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. Dated: October 2, 2008. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Fox Hill (SR107) Bridge has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 6 feet at mean high water and 16 feet at mean low water. The existing drawbridge operation regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.618(c). The Massachusetts Highway Department (MHD) requested a temporary deviation to help insure the safe reliable operation of the bridge until major repairs can be implemented during the winter months when the waterway has little activity. The waterway has seasonal recreational vessels and commercial lobster fishing vessels of various sizes. A meeting between the Coast Guard, the owner of the bridge (MHD), and the commercial lobster fleet was held on September 10, 2008. The owner of the bridge presented engineering evidence of the poor condition of the bridge and the need to perform major bridge repairs during the winter months. It was concluded that in order to keep the bridge operating safely and reliably until the major repairs can commence the number of bridge openings must be reduced to save wear and tear on the mechanical components. This temporary deviation is therefore necessary in order to insure that the bridge continues to operate in a safe reliable manner until the major repairs can be made. No objection to the proposed temporary deviation schedule was voiced by interested parties. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Therefore, under this temporary deviation, in effect from October 15, 2008 through December 15, 2008, the Fox Hill (SR107) Bridge shall open on signal on the hour and half hour only between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. From 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. the draw shall open on signal if at least a one-hour advance notice is given by calling the number posted at the bridge. 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. Dated: October 2, 2008. Gary Kassof, Bridge Program Manager, First Coast Guard District. [FR Doc.

These provisions require each state to submit a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision that prohibits emissions that adversely affect another state’s air quality through interstate transport. ADEC has adequately addressed the four distinct elements related to the impact of interstate transport of air pollutants for the state of Alaska. These include prohibiting emissions that contribute significantly to nonattainment of the NAAQS in another state, interfere with maintenance of the NAAQS by another state, interfere with plans in another state to prevent significant deterioration of air quality, or interfere with efforts of another state to protect visibility.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CSX Transportation Inc. requested a 
temporary deviation for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad 
Drawbridge, mile 190.4, at Nashville, Tennessee, across the Cumberland 
River to close the bridge to navigation. The Louisville and Nashville 
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 meet the bridge 
owner's request the deviation period is 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., November 17-
20, 2008 for the draw span to remain in the closed-to-navigation 
position.
    There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section 
of the Cumberland River. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 47 feet 
above normal pool in the closed-to-navigation position. Navigation on 
the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows, barge fleeter, and 
recreational watercraft. The majority of vessels can pass under the 
bridge in the closed position. On average there may be no more than two 
openings during a week. This temporary deviation has been coordinated 
with waterway users and no objections were raised.
    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. This deviation from the operating regulations is 
authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
