The project will renew the bridge with a new deck arch structure compliant with current loading and seismic requirements, upgrade the interchange at Oregon Route 43, and provide substantially improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities. Construction work will continue through January 1, 2015. The project includes the construction of two temporary structures and two new bridge piers which will each require a cofferdam. The temporary structures will be constructed to facilitate the moving of the older bridge. To ensure the safety of construction crews on the barges, temporary structures, and cranes, two safety zones on each side of the river are being established to require vessels in the vicinity of the construction area to remain outside of the two designated safety zones. Additionally, these safety zones will ensure that the vessels operating in the vicinity of the designated area will not be in any dangerous areas near the temporary structures or cranes. Discussion of the Rule The rule establishes two safety zones that cover all waters of the Willamette River; however, the establishment of these safety zones does not entirely close this section of the Willamette River. The section of the Willamette River between the safety zones will remain open for vessel transits, and it will have a minimum channel width of 138 feet at all times. The safety zone on the western river bank encompasses all waters of the Willamette River within the following four points: 45–27′53.5″ 45–27′53.5″ 45–27′49.5″ 45–27′49.5″ N N N N 122–40′03.5″ 122–39′58.5″ 122–39′58.5″ 122–40′04.5″ W W W W The safety zone on the eastern river bank is encompassed within the following four points: 45–27′53.5″ 45–27′53.5″ 45–27′49.5″ 45–27′49.5″ N N N N 122–39′50.5″ 122–39′55.0″ 122–39′55.0″ 122–39′47.0″ W W W W Geographically this rule covers the waters of the Willamette River for two E:\FR\FM\29JNR1.SGM 29JNR1 38724 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 126 / Friday, June 29, 2012 / Rules and Regulations zones east and west of the main shipping channel, 100 feet upriver and downriver of the existing Sellwood Bridge, from the edges of the shipping channel outward to the east and west shorelines.

These safety zones will ensure the safety of the all vessels and crew that are working and transiting in the construction areas. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has not been designated a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this regulation under Executive Order 12866. The Coast Guard has made this determination based on the fact that the safety zones created by this rule will not significantly affect the maritime public because vessels may still transit in the vicinity of the safety zones. Impact on Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 Jun 28, 2012 Jkt 226001 This rule may affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to operate in the area covered by the safety zones. The safety zones will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because the area can still be used to transit through this section of the river, which will maintain a minimum width of 138 feet. Other maritime users, such as dragon boats, kayaks, and canoes, will be able to transit around the safety zones or through the open section. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please contact ENS Ian McPhillips, Waterways Management Division, Marine Safety Unit Portland, Coast Guard; telephone 503–240–9319, email msupdxwwm@uscg.mil. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to contact the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of the people, places or vessels. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such any expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interferences with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not E:\FR\FM\29JNR1.SGM 29JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 126 / Friday, June 29, 2012 / Rules and Regulations require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. ■ 2. Add § 165.T13–207 to read as follows: Technical Standards § 165.T13–207 Safety Zones; Sellwood Bridge project, Willamette River; Portland, OR. The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. An environmental analysis checklist supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary Final Rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is establishing two safety zones to remain in 
effect throughout the duration of the construction and renewal of the 
Sellwood Bridge located on the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. 
This action is necessary to ensure the safety of vessels transiting in 
close proximity to cranes, barges, and temporary structures associated 
with this construction project. During the effective period, all 
vessels will be required to remain at the prescribed safe distance from 
the construction area while transiting in the vicinity of the Sellwood 
Bridge project; however, the establishment of these safety zones does 
not entirely close this section of the Willamette River. The section of 
the Willamette River between the safety zones will remain open for 
vessel transits, and it will have a minimum channel width of 138 feet 
at all times.

DATES: This rule is effective from July 1, 2012 until January 31, 2015.

NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Regulatory History and Information

    On May 14, 2012 we published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) 
titled Sellwood Bridge Project, Willamette River (77 FR 15009). We 
received no comments on the proposed rule. There were no requests made 
for public meeting regarding this rule and none were held. No other 
documents have been published for this rulemaking.

Basis and Purpose

    The Sellwood Bridge project will replace the existing 86 year old 
bridge that is structurally inadequate and functionally obsolete. The 
project will renew the bridge with a new deck arch structure compliant 
with current loading and seismic requirements, upgrade the interchange 
at Oregon Route 43, and provide substantially improved bicycle and 
pedestrian facilities. Construction work will continue through January 
1, 2015. The project includes the construction of two temporary 
structures and two new bridge piers which will each require a 
cofferdam. The temporary structures will be constructed to facilitate 
the moving of the older bridge. To ensure the safety of construction 
crews on the barges, temporary structures, and cranes, two safety zones 
on each side of the river are being established to require vessels in 
the vicinity of the construction area to remain outside of the two 
designated safety zones. Additionally, these safety zones will ensure 
that the vessels operating in the vicinity of the designated area will 
not be in any dangerous areas near the temporary structures or cranes.

Discussion of the Rule

    The rule establishes two safety zones that cover all waters of the 
Willamette River; however, the establishment of these safety zones does 
not entirely close this section of the Willamette River. The section of 
the Willamette River between the safety zones will remain open for 
vessel transits, and it will have a minimum channel width of 138 feet 
at all times. The safety zone on the western river bank encompasses all 
waters of the Willamette River within the following four points:

 
 
 
         45-27'53.5'' N                      122-40'03.5'' W
         45-27'53.5'' N                      122-39'58.5'' W
         45-27'49.5'' N                      122-39'58.5'' W
         45-27'49.5'' N                      122-40'04.5'' W
 

    The safety zone on the eastern river bank is encompassed within the 
following four points:

 
 
 
         45-27'53.5'' N                      122-39'50.5'' W
         45-27'53.5'' N                      122-39'55.0'' W
         45-27'49.5'' N                      122-39'55.0'' W
         45-27'49.5'' N                      122-39'47.0'' W

zones east and west of the main shipping channel, 100 feet upriver and 
downriver of the existing Sellwood Bridge, from the edges of the 
shipping channel outward to the east and west shorelines. The section 
of the Willamette River between the safety zones will remain open for 
vessel transits, and it will have a minimum width of 138 feet at all 
times. These safety zones will ensure the safety of the all vessels and 
crew that are working and transiting in the construction areas.

Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders.

Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, 
and 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, direct agencies to assess 
the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. This rule has not been designated a significant regulatory 
action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the 
Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed this regulation under 
Executive Order 12866. The Coast Guard has made this determination 
based on the fact that the safety zones created by this rule will not 
significantly affect the maritime public because vessels may still 
transit in the vicinity of the safety zones.

Impact on Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.
    The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities. This rule may affect the following entities, some of which 
may be small entities: the owners and operators of vessels intending to 
operate in the area covered by the safety zones. The safety zones will 
not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities because the area can still be used to transit through this 
section of the river, which will maintain a minimum width of 138 feet. 
Other maritime users, such as dragon boats, kayaks, and canoes, will be 
able to transit around the safety zones or through the open section.

Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please contact ENS Ian McPhillips, Waterways 
Management Division, Marine Safety Unit Portland, Coast Guard; 
telephone 503-240-9319, email msupdxwwm@uscg.mil. The Coast Guard will 
not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about 
this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

Protest Activities

    The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in 
such any expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interferences with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian Tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian Tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian Tribes.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not

[[Page 38725]]

require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)(42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have made a 
preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of 
actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment. An environmental analysis checklist 
supporting this determination is available in the docket where 
indicated under ADDRESSES. This rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(g), of the instruction. This rule involves 
the creation of two safety zones.
