Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 172 / Tuesday, September 8, 2009 / Notices equipped, no later than the quiet zone implementation date, with active grade crossing warning devices comprising both flashing lights and gates which control traffic over the crossing and that conform to the standards contained in the MUTCD. Such warning devices shall be equipped with constant warning time devices, if reasonably practical, and power-out indicators.’’ The purpose of constant warning time devices (CWT) is so that the crossing warning devices provide the same amount of warning time regardless of the speed of the approaching train. The City is in the process of establishing a new partial quiet zone along the BNSF Railway’s (BNSF) Northwest Division, Fallbridge Subdivision, which would extend from approximately Milepost 9.95 to Milepost 10.51. The new partial quiet zone will consist of three public atgrade crossings: West 11th Street (DOT #092276S), Jefferson Street (DOT #090249N), and West 8th Street (DOT #090248G). The City seeks a waiver from the defined hours for a new partial quiet zone (10 p.m. to 7 a.m.) in order to have the new partial quiet zone’s hours to be from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The City states that the change is sought to provide noise relief during the downtown residents and convention visitors prime sleeping periods while minimizing the effect on peak commercial traffic movements or safety. The City plans to utilize a temporary closure supplementary safety measure at the West 8th Street crossing and that there would be virtually no adverse impact on highway traffic if the street was open to traffic from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The City’s new partial quiet zone plan includes the use of medians at the Jefferson Street grade crossing. The medians will be alternative safety measures as the southern median will only extend 50 feet from the gate. Jefferson Street is currently equipped with automatic warning devices consisting of standard flashing lights with gates. However, the warning devices are not equipped with CWT. The City states that the use of CWT at this crossing is not reasonably practical at this location since the crossing will be closed by December 31, 2011, as part of the City’s Waterfront Access project. The City is requesting a temporary waiver through the end of 2011, at which time the crossings will be closed as part of the City’s Waterfront Access project. The City states that it works closely with BNSF on a variety of projects and believes that it has a good working relationship with the railroad. The City VerDate Nov<24>2008 22:36 Sep 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 contacted BNSF immediately concerning the proposed waivers and that the BNSF did not express any reservation with the proposed new partial quiet zone hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. The City requested input from BNSF on the quiet zone improvements proposed for Jefferson Street but had not received a response. The City does not anticipate BNSF support for the portion of the waiver concerning CWT and decided to file the waiver petition alone in order to expedite the process. It also states that the lack of a joint submission will not compromise public safety or will applying the requirement of a joint submission be likely to significantly contribute to public safety. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing.
