By contract with the owner, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), and in conjunction with the Small Starts American Recovery and Rehabilitation Act (ARRA), MBCR will be installing electronic track circuits on both tracks 1 and 2 to facilitate a bi-directional operation. New interlockings will be installed at MP 6, Horgan; MP 9, Beaver Brook; MP 10, Moody; MP 18, Hills; and MP 25, Maynard Junction. All interlockings will be equipped with colorlight LED type signal heads and electric switch machines. The interlockings at West Cambridge, Hill Crossing, and Clematis Brook will be retired and South Acton will become Maynard Junction. The mechanical bedlocking interlocking machine at PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76069 Waltham Tower will be retired. Twentysix existing automatic searchlight style signals will be retired, with twenty new automatic signals installed. The proposed modifications will retire a signal system comprised of dc neutral, mechanical, and searchlight type relays, and traffic control circuitry that operates via line wire and cable. Control of the territory will be transferred into the Commuter Rail Operations Control Center in Somerville, MA. This project is part of several projects designed to decrease passenger train trip time between Fitchburg, and Boston, MA.

Random Drug and Alcohol Testing Percentage Rates of Covered 
Aviation Employees for the Period of January 1, 2011, Through December 
31, 2011

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA has determined that the minimum random drug and 
alcohol testing percentage rates for the period January 1, 2011, 
through December 31, 2011, will remain at 25 percent of safety-
sensitive employees for random drug testing and 10 percent of safety-
sensitive employees for random alcohol testing.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Kevin Kearns, Office of Aerospace 
Medicine, Drug Abatement Division, Program Administration Branch (AAM-
810), Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., 
Room 806, Washington, DC 20591; Telephone (202) 267-8442.
    Discussion: Pursuant to 14 CFR 120.109(b), the FAA Administrator's 
decision on whether to change the minimum annual random drug testing 
rate is based on the reported random drug test positive rate for the 
entire aviation industry. If the reported random drug test positive 
rate is less than 1.00%, the Administrator may continue the minimum 
random drug testing rate at 25%. In 2009, the random drug test positive 
rate was 0.534%. Therefore, the minimum random drug testing rate will 
remain at 25% for calendar year 2011.
    Similarly, 14 CFR 120.217(c), requires the decision on the minimum 
annual random alcohol testing rate to be based on the random alcohol 
test violation rate. If the violation rate remains less than 0.50%, the 
Administrator may continue the minimum random alcohol testing rate at 
10%. In 2009, the random alcohol test violation rate was 0.088%. 
Therefore, the minimum random alcohol testing rate will remain at 10% 
for calendar year 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: If you have questions about how the annual 
random testing percentage rates are determined please refer to the Code 
of Federal Regulations Title 14, section 120.109(b) (for drug testing), 
and 120.217(c) (for alcohol testing).
