ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the use of non domestic Gear-Motor Assembly with Horsepower 7.5, Output RPM 15, Torque 33011 inlb, Voltage 220/460 and brakes torque 55.3 in-lb for rehabilitation of Federalaid project FPID 415386–2–38–01; West Columbus Drive Bridge project in Tampa, Florida. DATES: The effective date of the waiver is July 6, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions about this notice, please contact Mr. Gerald Yakowenko, FHWA Office of Program Administration, (202) 366–1562, or via e-mail at gerald.yakowenko@dot.gov. For legal questions, please contact Mr. Michael Harkins, FHWA Office of the Chief Counsel, (202) 366–4928, or via e-mail at michael.harkins@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from the Federal Register’s home page at: https:// www.archives.gov and the Government Printing Office’s database at: https:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara. Background The FHWA’s Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate to use non domestic Gear-Motor Assembly with Horsepower 7.5, Output RPM 15, Torque 33011 in-lb, Voltage 220/460 and brakes torque 55.3 in-lb. The use of the Gear-Motor assembly is for replacement of original machinery that meets Federal design code, AASHTO LRFD for Movable Highway Bridge Design Specifications for bascule bridges. In accordance with Division A, section 123 of the ‘‘Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010’’ (Pub. L. 111– 117), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for Gear-Motor assembly (https:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=48) on May 5, 2010. The FHWA received no comments in response to the publication, which suggests that the Gear-Motor assembly may not be available domestically. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers for Gear-Motor assembly with Horsepower 7.5, Output RPM 15, Torque 33011 in-lb, Voltage 220/460 and brakes torque 55.3 in-lb. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers for Gear-Motor assembly; with Horsepower 7.5, Output RPM 15, Torque 33011 inlb, Voltage 220/460 and brakes torque 55.3 in-lb. In accordance with the provisions of section 117 of the SAFETEA–LU Technical Corrections Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110–244, 122 Stat.1572), the FHWA E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1
