Temporary final rule. The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone in the lower Duwamish Waterway around SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Jun 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 A. Regulatory History and 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 to do so would be impracticable. The Coast Guard did not find out about the need for this safety zone with enough time to issue an NPRM. Delayed promulgation may result in injury or damage to persons and vessels in the lower Duwamish waterway from the hazards associated with the bridge construction. 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. Delaying the effective date until 30 days after publication would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest, as this delay would eliminate the safety zone’s effectiveness and usefulness in protecting persons, property, and the safe navigation of maritime traffic during the 30-day period. B. Basis and Purpose Kiewit Massman notified the Coast Guard of its intentions to set up a bridge leaf for the South Park Bridge construction project, beginning on July 29, 2013. This process requires the use of a crane mounted on a barge. The barge will fully block the Duwamish channel. The duration of the safety zone for this construction is necessary to provide construction crews the proper time needed to fully bolt and connect the leaf section of the bridge to the pier E:\FR\FM\25JNR1.SGM 25JNR1
