Regattas and Marine Parades in the COTP Lake Michigan Zone, 32863-32864 [2014-13302]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 110 / Monday, June 9, 2014 / Rules and Regulations History On March 31, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for the Conway, AR, area, creating controlled airspace at Cantrell Field (79 FR 17944) Docket No. FAA–2014–0178. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 12-mile radius of Cantrell Field, Conway, AR, for new standard instrument approach procedures developed at the airport. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:05 Jun 06, 2014 Jkt 232001 safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes controlled airspace at Cantrell Field, Conway, AR. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1. The authority citation for 14 CFR part 71 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of the Federal Aviation Administration Order 7400.9X, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, is amended as follows: ■ Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface. * * ASW AR E5 * * Conway, AR [New] Cantrell Field, AR (Lat. 35°01′12″ N., long. 92°33′18″ W.)

Temporary final rule; effective period extended. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is extending the temporary final rule changing the operating schedule that governs the Pelican Island Causeway bridge across Galveston Channel mile 4.5 (GIWW mile 356.1), at Galveston, Texas. Extending this temporary final rule allows the bridge to remain closed to navigation for an additional six months while major repairs are conducted to the mechanical portions of the bascule span. The additional time for these repairs is necessary due to a delay in beginning the repairs resulting from construction and contractual needs and delays. DATES: This temporary final rule is effective from 6 a.m. on July 8, 2014 through 6 a.m. on December 31, 2014. ADDRESSES: Documents mentioned in this preamble are part of docket USCG– 2013–0063.

If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Cheryl Collins, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Regulatory History and Information On April 5, 2013, we published a temporary final rule entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operating Regulations; Pelican Island Causeway, Galveston Channel, TX’’ in the Federal Register (78 FR 20451). This temporary final rule allows the Pelican Island Causeway bridge to remain closed to navigation during certain times for necessary bridge repairs and is effective through July 8, 2014. The Coast Guard is extending 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), 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 is extending an already existing temporary final rule. Completing the NRPM process is impracticable and contrary to public interest because it would interrupt and delay the scheduled and noticed repair work for this bridge. Continuing this repair work without interruption requires the bridge to be closed to navigation throughout the PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 repair period. The scheduled start date for the repair work was delayed and the existing temporary final rule, although in effect, was not utilized until October, 2013. The time required for the work necessary to repair the bridge remains 14 months, requiring an extension to this temporary final rule and allowing repair work to continue seamlessly. Further, while this closure has prevented certain vessels from passing under the bridge, vessels will be able to transit around the island through the Galveston Channel. This route involves an additional distance of up to three miles. B. Basis and Purpose The Pelican Island Causeway bridge, Galveston Channel mile 4.5 (GIWW mile 356.1), at Galveston, Texas, is a bascule bridge connecting Galveston Island with Pelican Island in Galveston, Texas. The roadway is the only land route between the two islands and is a vital link to numerous facilities and to the Texas A&M University Galveston Maritime School. An inspection by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration determined that the ‘‘Rocker Segmental Girder Tracks’’ that allow the bridge to open and close were severely damaged and in need of immediate repair. Due to the advanced age of the bridge, replacement parts were not readily available and the existing parts had to be removed and molds made to manufacture replacement parts. During the planning stages for this work, modifications to the work required contractual issues to be corrected, delaying the start of the project approximately six months. During the delay, the bridge continued to operate normally allowing for the passage of vessels through the bridge. Due to the fact that the start of the project was delayed and the total time of the repair did not change, the extension of the temporary final rule is necessary to accommodate completing repairs. Under the existing operating schedule, before the temporary final rule, the bridge operated as follows: The draw of the Pelican Island Causeway bridge across Galveston Channel, mile 4.5 of the Galveston Channel, (GIWW mile 356.1) at Galveston, Texas, shall open on signal; except that, from 6:40 a.m. to 8:10 a.m., 12 noon to 1 p.m., and 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Monday through Friday except Federal holidays, the draw need not be opened for passage of vessels. Public vessels of the United States and vessels in distress shall be passed at any time. E:\FR\FM\09JNR1.SGM 09JNR1
