The Coast Guard published a temporary deviation for the 103rd Street (Wards Island) Pedestrian Bridge on January 20, 2011, (76 FR 3516), authorizing the bridge to remain in the closed position effective from January 10, 2011 through April 29, 2011. The bridge owner has requested a second temporary deviation through July 8, 2011 in order to continue rehabilitation past April 29, 2011, due to unanticipated additional repair work which was discovered. In addition, containment scaffolding located under the lift span will reduce the vertical clearance by approximately four feet while the scaffolding is in place. Most vessel traffic that uses this waterway can fit under the draw without requiring bridge openings. Under this temporary deviation the 103rd Street (Wards Island) Pedestrian Bridge may remain in the closed position from April 30, 2011 through July 8, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Union Pacific Railroad has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule for the swing span bridge across the Calcasieu River, mile 36.4, at Westlake, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana. The swing span bridge has a vertical clearance of 1.07 feet above mean high water, elevation 3.56 feet Mean Gulf Level in the closed-to-navigation position. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, the bridge currently opens on signal for the passage of vessels. This deviation allows the swing span of the bridge to remain closed to navigation from 11 p.m. Sunday, April 17, 2011, through 5 a.m. on Monday, April 25, 2011, and from 11 p.m. on Sunday, May 8, 2011, through 5 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31, 2011. The closure is necessary in order to perform maintenance and updates to the bridge’s operating system while minimizing the exposure of personnel to hazards associated with performing work of a complicated nature in the dark. This maintenance is essential for the continued operation of the bridge. Notices will be published in the Eighth Coast Guard District Local Notice to Mariners and will be broadcast via the Coast Guard Broadcast Notice to Mariners System. Navigation on the waterway is minimal at the bridge site. The very limited commercial traffic at the bridge site consists of commercial tugs with tows. There are only two companies that transit above the bridge. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies if necessary. There are no alternate WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with RULES ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 11:35 Apr 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 waterway routes available. Based on experience and coordination with waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on vessels that use the waterway. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. 50 CFR Part 679 metric tons (mt) as established by the final 2011 and 2012 harvest specifications for groundfish of the GOA (76 FR 11111, March 1, 2011). In accordance with § 679.20(d)(1)(i), the Regional Administrator has determined that the 2011 TAC of pollock in the West Yakutat District of the GOA will soon be reached. Therefore, the Regional Administrator is establishing a directed fishing allowance of 2,239 mt, and is setting aside the remaining 100 mt as bycatch to support other anticipated groundfish fisheries. In accordance with § 679.20(d)(1)(iii), the Regional Administrator finds that this directed fishing allowance has been reached. Consequently, NMFS is prohibiting directed fishing for pollock in the West Yakutat District of the GOA. After the effective date of this closure the maximum retainable amounts at § 679.20(e) and (f) apply at any time during a trip. [Docket No. 101126522–0640–02] Classification RIN 0648–XA362 This action responds to the best available information recently obtained from the fishery. The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NOAA (AA), finds good cause to waive the requirement to provide prior notice and opportunity for public comment pursuant to the authority set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) as such requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This requirement is impracticable and contrary to the public interest as it would prevent NMFS from responding to the most recent fisheries data in a timely fashion and would delay the closure of pollock in the West Yakutat District of the GOA. NMFS was unable to publish a notice providing time for public comment because the most recent, relevant data only became available as of April 4, 2011. The AA also finds good cause to waive the 30-day delay in the effective date of this action under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). This finding is based upon the reasons provided above for waiver of prior notice and opportunity for public comment. This action is required by § 679.20 and is exempt from review under Executive Order 12866. Dated: March 31, 2011. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Union Pacific Railroad has requested a 
temporary deviation from the operating schedule for the swing span 
bridge across the Calcasieu River, mile 36.4, at Westlake, Calcasieu 
Parish, Louisiana. The swing span bridge has a vertical clearance of 
1.07 feet above mean high water, elevation 3.56 feet Mean Gulf Level in 
the closed-to-navigation position.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, the bridge currently opens on 
signal for the passage of vessels. This deviation allows the swing span 
of the bridge to remain closed to navigation from 11 p.m. Sunday, April 
17, 2011, through 5 a.m. on Monday, April 25, 2011, and from 11 p.m. on 
Sunday, May 8, 2011, through 5 a.m. on Tuesday, May 31, 2011.
    The closure is necessary in order to perform maintenance and 
updates to the bridge's operating system while minimizing the exposure 
of personnel to hazards associated with performing work of a 
complicated nature in the dark. This maintenance is essential for the 
continued operation of the bridge. Notices will be published in the 
Eighth Coast Guard District Local Notice to Mariners and will be 
broadcast via the Coast Guard Broadcast Notice to Mariners System.

tugs with tows. There are only two companies that transit above the 
bridge. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies if necessary. 
There are no alternate waterway routes available. Based on experience 
and coordination with waterway users, it has been determined that this 
closure will not have a significant effect on vessels that use the 
waterway.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to 
its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated 
time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is 
authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
