The deviation period commences at 7 a.m., on October 1, 2014 and goes through 7 a.m., on November 1, 2014. During the deviation period, the asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:48 Sep 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 construction work requires 24-hour periods where the bridge will be unable to open to navigation. However, once a week, the bridge will be able to open to navigation for a period not to exceed two hours. Due to the nature of the work and the time necessary to dismantle the equipment, a definitive schedule of openings could not be created. The date and time of the weekly opening will be announced through a Coast Guard Broadcast Notice to Mariners at least 48 hours before the opening. The opening duration and frequency were established through coordination meetings with the local waterway users during August 2014. The vertical clearance of the swing bridge in the closed-to-navigation position is 12 feet at mean high water. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at any time and are advised to proceed with caution. During this temporary deviation, the southern approach to Gwynn’s Island by Sandy Point, VA can be used as an alternate route for vessels able to transit in water depths of two feet. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies during the closure periods. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: September 3, 2014. Waverly W. Gregory, Jr., Bridge Program Manager, Fifth Coast Guard District.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is taking final action to approve revisions to the Alaska State Implementation Plan (SIP). The State of Alaska (State) submitted these revisions on February 13, 2008, December 11, 2009, April 14, 2010, November 29, 2010, October 21, 2011, December 10, 2012, and January 28, 2013, to meet SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Clean Air Act (CAA) requirements. These revisions update the Alaska SIP to reflect changes to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), area designations, and Federal permitting requirements under section 110 of the CAA. In addition, the submitted changes revise and clarify Alaska permitting rules, and remove provisions that are duplicated in other regulations. Although the EPA is approving most of the submitted revisions, the EPA is not approving certain provisions which are inappropriate for SIP approval. The EPA is also correcting the SIP to remove specific provisions that were previously approved into the SIP in error. The corrections remove provisions that implement other requirements of the CAA, are not required by section 110 of the CAA, and were not relied on by the State to demonstrate attainment or maintenance of the NAAQS or to meet other specific requirements of section 110 of the CAA. Finally, the EPA is deferring action on certain portions of the submissions, including those that adopt by reference updates to the Federal nonattainment major new source review requirements, because those revisions will be addressed in separate actions. This final rule is effective on October 20, 2014. DATES: The EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket Identification No. EPA–R10–OAR– 2011–0916.
