Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. The Delaware Department of Transportation (DELDOT), who owns and operates this bascule type drawbridge, has requested a temporary deviation from the current operating regulations set out in 33 CFR 117.237(c) to facilitate the inspection of the operational equipment within the structure. The Walnut Street Bridge, at mile 2.8, across the Christina River in Wilmington, DE has a vertical clearance in the closed position to vessels of 13 feet above mean high water. Under the regular operating schedule the bridge opens on signal as required by 117.237(c). Under this temporary deviation, the Walnut Street Bridge will be closed to vessels and will require two hours advance notice to open each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., on June 23, 2011 until July 1, 2011, and on July 18, 2011 until July 22, 2011. At all other times, the Walnut Street Bridge will open on signal. Vessels that can pass under the closed span without an opening may do so at all times. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Christina River. There are three vessels that travel through the bridge several times per week whose vertical clearance surpasses the closed bridge position, requiring an opening of the draw span. DELDOT has coordinated this replacement work with these three waterway users and the Coast Guard will inform the other 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 minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. The bridge may be delayed when opening for an emergency during the proposed equipment inspections. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Dated: June 23, 2011. Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 By direction of the Commander.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Wilmington Family YMCA, on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, who owns and operates the Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge across the Cape Fear River, mile 26.8, and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge across Northeast Cape Fear River, at mile 1.0, both in Wilmington, NC, requested a temporary deviation from the current operating schedules to accommodate the 29th Annual Wilmington Family YMCA Tri-Span race scheduled for July 9, 2011. The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is a vertical-lift drawbridge with a vertical clearance of 65 feet above mean high water in the closed position to vessels and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge is a double-leaf bascule drawbridge with a vertical clearance of 40 feet above mean high water in the closed position to vessels. Under the regular operating schedules during the requested period for the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge, the draws need not open for the passage of vessels from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on the second Saturday of July of every year set out at 33 CFR 117.823 and at 33 CFR 117.829(a)(4), respectively. Due to the extreme high temperatures expected for Saturday July 9, 2011 (the second Saturday of July 2011), the Wellness Director for the Wilmington Family YMCA requested to change the closure times to vessels for the aforementioned drawbridges from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. to 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridges will be closed to vessels from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday July 9, 2011. Typical vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River and Northeast Cape Fear River includes a variety of vessels from freighters, tug and barge traffic, and recreational vessels. Vessels that can pass under the bridges without a bridge opening may continue to do so at anytime. The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with commercial and recreational waterway users. The Coast Guard will use Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners to inform all users of the waterways of the closure periods for the bridges so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary deviation.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Postal Service will revise Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) 604.4, 604.8, and 604.10, to implement revenue protection procedures for mailpieces entered with shortpaid and unpaid Information Based Indicia (IBI) postage payment and to implement revenue protection procedures for shortpaid Express Mail® postage. DATES: Effective September 6, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carla Sherry at 703–280–7068, or Carol A. Lunkins at 202–268–7262. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 22, 2011, the Postal Service published the Federal Register proposed rule, Shortpaid and Unpaid Information-Based Indicia (IBI) Postage and Shortpaid Express Mail Postage, Revised Proposal (76 FR 9702–9705). The Postal Service received four comments and gave them each consideration and will adopt the proposed rule with minor revisions. SUMMARY: Comments One commenter raised concerns about the ability of customers who pay postage with IBI postage meters to use an existing account and/or payment method in lieu of a credit card to pay revenue deficiencies. At the present time, the Postal Service will not permit customers to use existing accounts and/ or payment methods in lieu of credit cards to pay revenue deficiencies, but this may be a future consideration. One commenter expressed concern regarding the Postal Service’s proposal to use an electronic notification process to recover revenue deficiencies from PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 39299 customers using IBI postage meters. Only customers who pay postage with postage evidencing systems with e-mail addresses either on file with the Postal Service or with whom the Postal Service has an agreement and a process in place to obtain e-mail addresses will receive an electronic notification. If a customer’s e-mail address is not available, the Postal Service will use other existing processes to recover revenue deficiencies. One commenter asked for clarification of ‘‘other non-electronic processes’’ that will be used to identify shortpaid and unpaid postage. In the event that the new electronic processes are unavailable, the Postal Service will use existing methods to collect unpaid and shortpaid IBI postage. The Postal Service is making a minor change in the language to state, ‘‘In the event that electronic processes are unavailable, other existing processes may be used to recover revenue deficiency as required.’’ One commenter asked for clarification regarding the procedures for remedying postage deficiencies generated from Click-N-Ship. The Postal Service is making a minor change to further clarify that the new automated procedures for detecting and recovering postage deficiencies apply to shortpaid and unpaid postage generated from Click-NShip. However, this does not preclude the use of existing processes to identify or recover postage deficiencies. For items with shortpaid IBI postage that is generated from Click-N-Ship, the Postal Service will continue to allow mailers to remit payments for such postage deficiencies via Click-N-Ship and follow the existing postage deficiency process. With this final rule, the Postal Service implements new procedures to manage shortpaid Express Mail postage and a new process to detect mailpieces with shortpaid and unpaid IBI postage generated from the following postage evidencing systems: Click-N-Ship®, IBI postage meters, and PC Postage® products. The Postal Service also implements a new USPS Web-based resolution process to remedy shortpaid and unpaid IBI postage payment deficiencies; a process to dispute shortpaid and unpaid IBI postage deficiency assessments; and a process to appeal USPS decisions relative to shortpaid and unpaid IBI postage. During this process, customers will be notified electronically of the postage deficiency and be provided a link to a specific USPS Web-based customer payment portal to resolve the shortage. In addition to this new process, the Postal Service will continue to use the existing postage deficiency payment process for shortpaid and E:\FR\FM\06JYR1.SGM 06JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Wilmington Family YMCA, on behalf of the 
North Carolina Department of Transportation, who owns and operates the 
Cape Fear River Memorial Bridge across the Cape Fear River, mile 26.8, 
and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge across Northeast Cape Fear River, at 
mile 1.0, both in Wilmington, NC, requested a temporary deviation from 
the current operating schedules to accommodate the 29th Annual 
Wilmington Family YMCA Tri-Span race scheduled for July 9, 2011.
    The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is a vertical-lift drawbridge with a 
vertical clearance of 65 feet above mean high water in the closed 
position to vessels and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge is a double-leaf 
bascule drawbridge with a vertical clearance of 40 feet above mean high 
water in the closed position to vessels.
    Under the regular operating schedules during the requested period 
for the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge and the Isabel S. Holmes Bridge, the 
draws need not open for the passage of vessels from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. 
on the second Saturday of July of every year set out at 33 CFR 117.823 
and at 33 CFR 117.829(a)(4), respectively.
    Due to the extreme high temperatures expected for Saturday July 9, 
2011 (the second Saturday of July 2011), the Wellness Director for the 
Wilmington Family YMCA requested to change the closure times to vessels 
for the aforementioned drawbridges from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. to 7 a.m. to 
9 a.m.
    Under this temporary deviation, the drawbridges will be closed to 
vessels from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday July 9, 2011.
    Typical vessel traffic on the Cape Fear River and Northeast Cape 
Fear River includes a variety of vessels from freighters, tug and barge 
traffic, and recreational vessels. Vessels that can pass under the 
bridges without a bridge opening may continue to do so at anytime.
    The Coast Guard has carefully coordinated the restrictions with 
commercial and recreational waterway users. The Coast Guard will use 
Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners to inform all users of the 
waterways of the closure periods for the bridges so that vessels can 
arrange their transits to minimize any impacts caused by the temporary 
deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the draw 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.
