SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Trimet of Portland and the Oregon Department of Transportation have requested that the upper deck of the Steel Bridge remain closed to vessel traffic to facilitate safe efficient movement of light rail and roadway traffic associated with the Starlight Parade. The Steel Bridge crosses the Willamette River at mile 12.1 and is a double-deck lift bridge with a lower lift deck and an upper lift deck which operate independent of each other. When both decks are in the down position the bridge provides 26 feet of vertical clearance above Columbia River Datum 0.0. When the lower deck is in the up position the bridge provides 71 feet of vertical clearance above Columbia River Datum 0.0. This deviation does not affect the operating schedule of the lower deck which opens on signal. Vessels which do not require an opening of the upper deck of the bridge may continue to transit beneath the bridge and, if needed, may obtain an opening of the lower deck of the bridge for passage during this closure period of the upper deck. Under normal conditions the upper deck of the Steel Bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.897(c)(3)(ii) which states that from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday one hour advance notice shall be given for draw openings and at all other times two hours advance notice shall be given to obtain an opening. This deviation period is from 7 p.m. on June 2, 2012 through 11:30 p.m. June 2, 2012. The deviation allows the upper deck of the Steel Bridge across the Willamette River, mile 12.1, to remain in the closed position and need not open for maritime traffic from 7 p.m. through 11:30 p.m. on June 2, 2012. The bridge shall operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.897 at all other times. Waterway usage on this stretch of the Willamette River includes vessels ranging from VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:13 May 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Mariners will be notified and kept informed of the bridge’s operational status via the Coast Guard Notice to Mariners publication and Broadcast Notice to Mariners as appropriate. The lift span will be required to open, if needed, for public vessels of the United States and Canada and for vessels engaged in emergency response operations during this closure period. 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. Dated: May 7, 2012. Randall D. Overton, Bridge Administrator.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ebenthall on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with RULES ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the waters of Seddon Channel in the vicinity of the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida during the International Special Operations Forces Week Capability Exercise. The exercise SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:13 May 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 and Wednesday, May 23, 2012. The safety zone is necessary to protect the public from the hazards associated with airborne and waterborne activities occurring during the exercise. Persons and vessels are prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port St. Petersburg or a designated representative. DATES: This rule is effective from 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 until 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, 2012. ADDRESSES: Documents indicated in this preamble as being available in the docket are part of docket USCG–2012– 0007 and are available online by going to http://www.regulations.gov, inserting USCG–2012–0007 in the ‘‘Keyword’’ box, and then clicking ‘‘Search.’’ They are also available for inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility (M–30), U.S. Department of Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone (202) 366–9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Regulatory Information The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary final rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to authority under section 4(a) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553(b)). This provision authorizes an agency to issue a rule without prior notice and opportunity to comment when the agency for good cause finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with respect to this rule because the Coast Guard did not receive information regarding the exercise until April 11, 2012. As a result, the Coast Guard did not have sufficient time to publish an NPRM and to receive public comments prior to the exercise. Any delay in the effective date of this rule would be PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29899 contrary to the public interest because immediate action is needed to minimize potential danger to the public during the exercise. For the same reason discussed above, under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish regulated navigation areas and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 U.S.C. Chapter 701, 3306, 3703; 50 U.S.C. 191, 195; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, 160.5; Pub. L. 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The purpose of the rule is to protect the public from the hazards associated with the airborne and waterborne activities during the exercise. Discussion of Rule On Tuesday, May 22, 2012 and Wednesday, May 23, 2012, the International Special Operations Forces Week Capability Exercise is scheduled to take place on the waters of Seddon Channel, in the vicinity of the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. The exercise will consist of multiple airborne and waterborne activities including: Persons fast-roping and jumping out of helicopters, high-speed boat pursuits, amphibious vehicles operations, and blank ammunition use. The exercise is scheduled to take place from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. on May 22, 2012, and from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. on May 23, 2012. The temporary safety zone encompasses certain waters of Seddon Channel in the vicinity of the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. The safety zone will be enforced from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. on May 22, 2012, and from 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. on May 23, 2012. Enforcement of the safety zone will begin 30 minutes prior to the scheduled commencement of the exercise each day at approximately 12:30 p.m., and end 30 minutes after the scheduled completion of the exercise at approximately 3:30 p.m. on May 22, 2012 and 2:30 p.m. on May 23, 2012 to ensure the safety zone is clear of persons and vessels.
