ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its findings on the noise compatibility program update submitted by the Louisville Regional Airport Authority (LRAA). On October 29, 2008, the LRAA submitted to the FAA Air Traffic Organization (ATO) a request with supporting documentation for an offset approach to Runway 17R at Louisville International Airport (SDF). This request was for a re-evaluation of noise abatement measure NA–7, and associated measures NA–2 and NA–3, submitted to the FAA for action in its 2003 NCP but were deferred. The FAA ATO evaluated the offset approach procedure provided by LRAA. After considerable review and evaluation, the procedure was disapproved. The FAA ATO notified LRAA of its determination on April 3, 2009. Subsequent to ATO’s determination, the FAA issued its Record of Approval (ROA) concerning the LRAA’s NCP update on August 4, 2009, and disapproved noise abatement measures NA–2, NA–3, and NA–7. In its evaluation, the FAA reviewed the proposal under 14 CFR part 150 and the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979. Section 150.35 of Part 150 includes language stating that programs will be approved under this part if program measures relating to the use of flight procedures for noise control can be implemented within the period covered by the program and without reducing the level of aviation safety provided or adversely affecting the efficient use and management of the navigable airspace and air traffic control systems. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA’s disapproval of the request for an offset approach to Runway 17R at Louisville International Airport is April 3, 2009. The effective date of FAA’s ROA of LRAA’s NCP update is August 4, 2009.

The FAA has given its disapproval to the Runway 17R offset approach request at LRAA. All other portions of the previously issued ROA remain in effect. The following is a brief overview of the request: On October 29, 2008, the LRAA provided the FAA Air Traffic Organization with a letter and supporting documentation requesting an offset approach to Runway 17R at Louisville International Airport (SDF). This was additional information submitted for re-evaluation of previously submitted but deferred noise abatement measures NA–2, NA–3, and NA–7 in LRAA’s 2003 NCP Issued in Memphis, TN on November 3, 2009.

    Pursuant to a written supplemental trackage rights agreement dated 
January 1, 2009, BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) has agreed to amend the 
existing overhead trackage rights previously granted to Union Pacific 
Railroad Company (UP) over BNSF's Bieber line at Keddie, CA.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This decision embraces Finance Docket No. 32760 (Sub-No. 1)

Transportation Company and were exempted by the Board. Union 
Pacific/Southern Pacific Merger, 1 S.T.B. 233 (1996).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to BNSF, the purpose of the proposed transaction is to 
amend the parties' existing agreement to accurately reflect the 
trackage rights received by UP under that agreement.

[[Page 59603]]

Specifically, BNSF states that the amendment deletes the existing 
agreement's Exhibit A and replaces it with a new Exhibit A (map). BNSF 
also states that the amendment provides that UP will perform signal 
maintenance on all signal facilities between BNSF's Bieber line 
(milepost 202.72) and wye connections with UP's Canyon Subdivision.
    The transaction is scheduled to be consummated on December 2, 2009, 
the effective date of the exemption (30 days after the exemption was

authorizes the following activities at any solid waste rail transfer 
facility: collecting, storing, or transferring solid waste outside of

waste (including baling, crushing, compacting, and shredding). The term 
``solid waste'' is defined in section 1004 of the Solid Waste Disposal 
Act, 42 U.S.C. 6903.
    This notice is filed under 49 CFR 1180.2(d)(7). If the notice 
contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab 
initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may 
be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not
