[FR Doc. 2010–13983 Filed 6–10–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–M DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration Petition for Waiver of Compliance In accordance with part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), notice is hereby given that the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) received a request for a waiver of compliance with certain requirements of its safety standards. The individual petition is described below, including the party seeking relief, the regulatory provisions involved, the nature of the relief being requested, and the petitioner’s arguments in favor of relief. Township of Montclair, New Jersey WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES [Waiver Petition Docket Number FRA–2010– 0096] The Township of Montclair, New Jersey (Township), and the New Jersey Transit Corporation (NJT) jointly seek a temporary waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Use of Locomotive Horns at Highway-Rail Grade Crossings, 49 CFR part 222. The Township intends to convert its PreRule Partial Quiet Zone that it had previously continued under the provisions of 49 CFR 222.41(c)(1) to a 24-hour New Quiet Zone. The Township is seeking a waiver for the requirement to construct and complete a New Quiet Zone by June 24, 2010, as required by 49 CFR 222.41(c)(2) and for an extension of such date to September 30, 2010. The Township states that it has worked diligently to complete the necessary improvements to establish a New Quiet Zone. There are 12 crossings in the existing Pre-Rule Partial Quiet Zone. 6 of these crossings will be treated with Supplementary Safety Measures VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:04 Jun 10, 2010 Jkt 220001 (SSM) as follows: 3 crossings with gates and medians, 2 crossings with fourquadrant gates, and 1 crossing that will be reconfigured from a two-street with gates to a one-way streets with gates. The Township and NJT have cooperatively worked to implement the planned improvements; however, due to the number of crossings and the complexity of the project, all of the planned improvements will not be completed by June 24, 2010. The Township requests that the existing PreRule Partial Quiet Zone with hours from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. be allowed to continue until September 30, 2010, by which time all of the improvements will have been completed. The Township states that SSMs consisting of gated crossings with medians will be completed at 3 of the crossings by June 24, 2010. It also notes that the existing Pre-Rule Partial Quiet Zone has been in existence since 1973, and that the residents and business owners have become accustomed to the absence of the horn during these hours. There has been only 1 grade crossing collision (property damage only) during the last 10 years. The Township and NJT feel that the extension of the PreRule Partial Quiet Zone until September 30, 2010, will not pose any additional risk to public health and 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. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request.
