Download as PDF 59476 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 221 / Wednesday, November 18, 2009 / Rules and Regulations under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends controlled airspace at Mankato Regional Airport, Mankato, MN. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR Part 71 as follows: ■ PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Burlington County Bridge Commission, who owns and operates this bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.5 and 117.716(b) to facilitate the resurfacing of the bridge roadway. The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge (Route 73) at mile 107.2, across the Delaware River, between Tacony, PA and Palmyra, NJ, has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 53 feet above mean high water (MHW). This clearance will be reduced for safety netting by approximately three feet to 50 feet above MHW. Under this temporary deviation, the resurfacing repairs will restrict the operation of the draw span on the following dates and times: Closed-to-navigation each day from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., from 9 p.m. on November 16, 2009 to 5 a.m. on November 24, 2009; and from 9 p.m. on November 30, 2009 to 5 a.m. on December 23, 2009; VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:15 Nov 17, 2009 Jkt 220001 except vessel openings will be provided with at least four hours advance notice given to the bridge operator at (856) 829–3002 or via marine radio on Channel 13. The drawbridge will open in the event of an emergency. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at all times. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Delaware River. The Coast Guard has coordinated the restrictions with the Delaware River Pilots Association and will inform the other users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. 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: November 6, 2009. Waverly W.

Caltrans requested a time extension to the temporary change to the operation of the California Route 160 Drawbridge, mile 0.1, Three Mile Slough, near Rio Vista, CA. Reference docket USCG–2009– 0896. The drawbridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 12 feet above Mean High Water in the closedto-navigation position. The drawbridge opens on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawbridge will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, from November 18, 2009 through November 20, 2009, to allow Caltrans to replace the industrial staircase leading to the control house. At all other times during this period, and on November 11, 2009, Veterans Day Holiday, the drawbridge will open on signal as required by 33 CFR 117.5. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with commercial and recreational waterway users. There is no anticipated levee maintenance during this deviation period. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels that can transit the drawbridge, while in the closed-tonavigation position, may continue to do so at any time. In the event of an emergency the drawbridge can be opened with 4 hours advance notice. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\18NOR1.SGM 18NOR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Burlington County Bridge Commission, who 
owns and operates this bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary 
deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 
117.5 and 117.716(b) to facilitate the resurfacing of the bridge 
roadway.
    The Tacony-Palmyra Bridge (Route 73) at mile 107.2, across the 
Delaware River, between Tacony, PA and Palmyra, NJ, has a vertical 
clearance in the closed position to vessels of 53 feet above mean high 
water (MHW). This clearance will be reduced for safety netting by 
approximately three feet to 50 feet above MHW.
    Under this temporary deviation, the resurfacing repairs will 
restrict the operation of the draw span on the following dates and 
times:
    Closed-to-navigation each day from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., from 9 p.m. on 
November 16, 2009 to 5 a.m. on November 24, 2009; and from 9 p.m. on

openings will be provided with at least four hours advance notice given 
to the bridge operator at (856) 829-3002 or via marine radio on Channel 
13. The drawbridge will open in the event of an emergency. Vessels that 
can pass under the bridge without a bridge opening may do so at all 
times. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this 
section of the Delaware River.
    The Coast Guard has coordinated the restrictions with the Delaware 
River Pilots Association and will inform the other users of the 
waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the 
closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their 
transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
    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.
