FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Withdrawal The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the responsible party for the operation of the S.R. 44 Bridge, at mile 1.7, across Mantua Creek at Paulsboro, NJ, had requested to change the operating schedule for the S.R. 44 Bridge to require a four-hour advance notification of vessel openings year-round due to the decrease in vessel opening requests of the drawbridge in recent years. The Coast Guard recently received an application from the South Jersey Port Corporation and the Gloucester County Improvement Authority proposing the construction of an access road and bridge that will span Mantua Creek within close proximity to the upstream S.R. 44 Bridge. The proposed bridge will be a three-span composite steel plate girder bridge (fixed superstructure) with two concrete piers within Mantua Creek. Based on the expected increase in the use of the waterway and vessel opening requests of the S.R. 44 Bridge, the rulemaking could impose critical service delays to commercial vessels attempting to arrive promptly on scene PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Authority This action is taken under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 499; 33 CFR 1.05– 1; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard proposes to amend the listing of permanent safety zones to ensure public safety during annual firework displays at various locations in the Eleventh Coast Guard District. These amendments will standardize the safety zone language, update listed events, delete events that are no longer occurring, add new unlisted annual fireworks events to the regulations, and standardize the format for all tables in these four sections. When these safety zones are activated, and thus subject to enforcement, this rule would limit the movement of vessels within the established firework display area.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On April 24, 2009, we published a notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) entitled ``Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Mantua Creek, 
Paulsboro, NJ'' in the Federal Register (74 FR 18665-18667). The 
rulemaking would have allowed the drawbridge to operate on an advance 
notice basis year-round.

Withdrawal

    The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the 
responsible party for the operation of the S.R. 44 Bridge, at mile 1.7, 
across Mantua Creek at Paulsboro, NJ, had requested to change the 
operating schedule for the S.R. 44 Bridge to require a four-hour 
advance notification of vessel openings year-round due to the decrease 
in vessel opening requests of the drawbridge in recent years.
    The Coast Guard recently received an application from the South 
Jersey Port Corporation and the Gloucester County Improvement Authority 
proposing the construction of an access road and bridge that will span 
Mantua Creek within close proximity to the upstream S.R. 44 Bridge. The 
proposed bridge will be a three-span composite steel plate girder 
bridge (fixed superstructure) with two concrete piers within Mantua 
Creek.
    Based on the expected increase in the use of the waterway and 
vessel opening requests of the S.R. 44 Bridge, the rulemaking could 
impose critical service delays to commercial vessels attempting to 
arrive promptly on scene for the proposed bridge construction. As a 
result of this change in circumstances, the proposed rulemaking would 
no longer improve the schedule for waterway users.

Authority

    This action is taken under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 499; 33 CFR 
1.05-1; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

    Dated: January 27, 2011.
