The DOT&PF’s proposed action is located in the Admiralty Island National Monument and Kootznoowoo Wilderness Area (Monument– Wilderness Area). The FAA has proposed additional alternatives to the proposed action, including the no action alternative. The purpose and need is discussed in detail in the Draft EIS. The proposed project would be comparable to other rural airports in Southeast Alaska, such as those at Kake or Hoonah. It would consist of a paved, 3,300-foot-long and 75-foot-wide runway, with future expansion to 4,000 feet long. Construction of the proposed airport would be completed in two to three construction seasons. The impact categories considered in the Draft EIS include numerous categories as required by FAA Orders 1050.1E and 5050.4B. In addition, subsistence activities and wilderness character are evaluated. Because the DOT&PF’s proposed action is located in the Monument–Wilderness Area, the DOT&PF has indicated that it intends to submit an application under ANILCA Title XI to use the lands, using the Draft EIS as supporting documentation.

FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2014– 0091. EBGR is headquartered in Boyertown, PA, and is a for-profit subsidiary of the nonprofit Colebrookdale Railroad Restoration Trust. EBGR has petitioned for a permanent waiver of compliance for its Plymouth locomotive, Number 6434, from the requirements of the Railroad Safety Glazing Standards, 49 CFR part 223, for certified glazing in all windows and a minimum of four emergency windows. The locomotive was built in 1964. The locomotive is used for one or two weekly trips over 8.6 miles of track between Boyertown and Pottstown, PA, which serves as a feeder line to the Norfolk Southern Railroad that runs through Pottstown, PA. The line meanders through woods and rock formations. There are six public at-grade highway crossings on the railroad. Two of those crossings have automated flashing lights. The remainder is equipped with cross-bucks. The locomotive is used primarily for passenger excursion trains and for yard switching duties in Boyertown. The maximum speed limit for these operations is 10 mph. EBGR indicates no instance of vandalism or personal injury, and professes financial burden in retrofitting the locomotive to comply with FRA safety glazing standards. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE., W12–140, Washington, DC 20590. The Docket Operations Facility is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested party desires an opportunity for oral comment, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number and may be E:\FR\FM\09JAN1.SGM 09JAN1
