Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Townsend Inlet, Avalon, NJ, 14803-14804 [2011-6338]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 53 / Friday, March 18, 2011 / Rules and Regulations Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Bryce Canyon Airport. This will improve the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing RNAV GPS standard instrument approach procedures at Bryce Canyon Airport. DATES: Effective date, 0901 UTC, June 30, 2011. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eldon Taylor, Federal Aviation Administration, Operations Support Group, Western Service Center, 1601 Lind Avenue SW., Renton, WA 98057; telephone (425) 203–4537. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On December 9, 2010, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish additional controlled airspace at Bryce Canyon, UT (75 FR 76650). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. The FAA received two comments. One commenter suggested adding airspace to the eastern boundary of the 1,200 foot AGL airspace description. The FAA found merit in this comment, and will incorporate this change in the final rule. The second commenter was concerned with the possible impact of noise on the Bryce Canyon National Park. This rule will only modify the existing airspace to the extent necessary to increase flight safety. The FAA does not believe this will create any change in the intensity, frequency of flight activity, or existing patterns of noise generation. With the exception of editorial changes and the changes described above, this rule is the same as that proposed in the NPRM. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in that Order. WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending the Class E airspace for the Bryce Canyon, UT area, adding additional controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to accommodate IFR aircraft executing RNAV (GPS) standard instrument VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:29 Mar 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 approach procedures at Bryce Canyon Airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106 discusses the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes additional controlled airspace at Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Cape May County Bridge Commission (CMCBC), who owns and operates this bascule drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedule to facilitate the cleaning and painting of the bridge structure. Under the regular operating schedule required by 33 CFR 117.757, the bridge opens on signal, except from 9:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the fourth Sunday in March of every year, the draw need not open for vessels. If the fourth Sunday falls on a religious holiday, the draw need not open from 9:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the third Sunday of March of every year. From 11 p.m. on December 24 until 11 p.m. on December 25, the draw need open only if at least two hours notice is given. The Townsend Inlet Bridge, mile 0.3, in Avalon, NJ, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 23 feet above mean high water. Vessels that can transit under the bridge without an opening may do so at any time. Under this temporary deviation, CMCBC will maintain the bridge in the closed position to vessels beginning at 5 a.m. on March 1, 2011 until and including 5 p.m. on April 30, 2011. In 2010, during the months of March and April, the bridge has opened for vessels 62 and 45 times, respectively. The majority of the vessels for which the bridge opened were tugs and barges being used for beach replenishment. The Coast Guard will inform users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the closure periods for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:29 Mar 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
