SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule for the Fremont Bridge, mile 2.6, crossing the Lake Washington Ship Canal at Seattle, WA. The deviation is necessary to accommodate SDOT workers for a bridge painting project. To facilitate this event, the full draw of the bridge need not open for vessel traffic ADDRESSES: unless a five hour advance notice is provided to the bridge operator. Additionally, one half of the draw of the bridge will be maintained in the closedto-navigation position, and the clearance reduced up to four feet. This deviation will begin at 7 a.m. on August 6, 2014 and continue until 6 p.m. on January 21, 2015. The Fremont Bridge, mile 2.6, is a double leaf bascule bridge which provides a vertical clearance of 14 feet (31 feet of vertical clearance for the center 36 horizontal feet) in the closed position. The clearance is referenced to the mean water elevation of Lake Washington. The normal operating schedule for the Fremont Bridge is set out in 33 CFR 117.1051 and states that the bridge need not open from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday for vessels less than 1000 tons. The normal operating schedule for this bridge also requires one hour advance notification for bridge openings between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily. Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship Canal ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed positions may do so at any time. The bridge will be able to open one leaf, half of the draw span, for emergencies and there is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessels can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. 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: August 6, 2014. Steven M. Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District. 49685 DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Coast Guard 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket No. USCG–2012–1036] Safety Zones; Recurring Marine Events in Captain of the Port Long Island Sound Zone AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing two 1000-yard temporary security zones around the President of the United States (POTUS) and/or the first family in conjunction with their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Vessels and people will be prohibited from entering these security zones during the effective period. These security zones will be effective from 30 minutes prior to the arrival of the POTUS and/or the first family within 1000 yards of navigable waters of the U.S. in the the coastal areas of Chilmark and Edgartown Great Pond, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, until departure of the POTUS and/or the first family from the area. These security zones are needed to safeguard the POTUS and the first family from potential threats or harm. Entry into these zones by any vessel or person is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) or the COTP’s designated onscene representative. DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from August 22, 2014 until rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:40 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 APA Administrative Procedure Act CFR Code of Federal Register DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking POTUS President of the United States USC United States Code USCG United States Coast Guard A. 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 of the sensitive security issues related to the POTUS and first family. Providing a public notice and comment period is contrary to national security concerns and the public interest. 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. Any delay encountered in this PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 temporary rule’s effective date would be contrary to the public interest given the immediate need to ensure the safety and security of the POTUS and first family during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014. B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for this rule is 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, and 160.5; Public Law 107–295, 116 Stat. 2064; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The POTUS and first family will visit Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08, 2014 through August 24, 2014. It is expected they will reside and/or participate in activities on property that borders navigable waters within the Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England zone. The U.S. Secret Service has requested that the Coast Guard provide 1000-yard waterside security zones around the POTUS and the first family. These security zones are intended to provide security for the POTUS and first family by preventing vessels and persons from approaching the location of the POTUS and first family without prior authorization from the U.S. Secret Service. C. Discussion of Rule This temporary rule establishes 1000yard security zones in the navigable waters in the vicinity of the POTUS and first family during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from August 08–24, 2014. Vessels and persons will be prohibited from entering these security zones whenever they are enforced due to the presence of the POTUS and/or first family. This rule is effective from 8:00 a.m. on Friday, August 08, 2014 through 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 24, 2014. This action is intended to temporarily prohibit vessels or people from approaching within 1000 yards of the POTUS and/or first family while they are in or near the navigable waters of the U.S. during their visit to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The Captain of the Port, Southeastern New England, anticipates negligible negative impact on vessel traffic from these temporary security zones, as they will be in effect for only sixteen days, and will only be enforced while the POTUS and/or first family are in the vicinity of the navigable waters of the U.S. at Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. It has been determined that the necessary security enhancements provided by this rule E:\FR\FM\22AUR1.SGM 22AUR1
