SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: California Department of Transportation has requested a temporary change to the operation of the Commodore Schuyler F. Heim highway bridge, mile 4.9, over Cerritos Channel, at Long Beach, CA. The drawbridge navigation span provides a vertical clearance of 37 feet above Mean High Water in the closedto-navigation position and a maximum of 43 feet due to construction falsework over the channel at the bridge. The draw opens on signal; except that, from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday except Federal holidays, the draw need not be opened for the passage of vessels, as required by 33 CFR 117.147(a). Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The drawspan will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position from 10 p.m. on March 15, 2015 to 2 a.m. on March 16, 2015; and from 10 p.m. on March 22, 2015 to 2 a.m. on March 23, 2015 to allow Southern California Edison Company to switch electrical power for the bridge to another source. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is an alternate route around Terminal Island for routine and emergency navigation. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so vessel operators can arrange ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: March 11, 2015. D.H. Sulouff, District Bridge Chief, Eleventh Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The South Park highway bridge is a double bascule span drawbridge that requires under bridge maintenance. King County Road Services Division requested a deviation to the published drawbridge operation schedule to enable timely completion of the required bridge maintenance. The South Park highway bridge is located in the Duwamish Waterway, mile 3.8, at Seattle, WA, and provides 34.8 feet of vertical clearance at center span while in the closed position, 30 feet of vertical clearance at the extreme east and west ends of the navigable channel, and unlimited vertical clearance with half of the bascule bridge in the fully open position. Vertical clearances are referenced to mean high-water elevation (MHW). Horizontal clearance is 128 feet. However, horizontal clearance may be restricted by construction barges. The normal operation schedule for the bridge is in 33 CFR 117.1041, which specifies that the draws of each bridge across the Duwamish Waterway shall open on signal, except the draw of the South Park highway bridge, mile 3.8, which need not be opened for the passage of vessels from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The deviation period is effective from 12:01 a.m. on March 17, 2015 to 11:59 p.m. on March 28, 2015, and allows the drawbridge to remain closed to mariners needing a full channel double bascule opening. For mariners that only require a single leaf, half channel, drawbridge opening, such an opening will be given upon signal. A drawtender will be present 24 hours a day, 7 days week. To request a single leaf opening, mariners may utilize any of the following methods: (1) Via VHF maritime radio; (2) telephone; (3) one prolonged blast followed quickly by one short blast and one prolonged blast. Waterborne traffic on this stretch of the Duwamish waterway consists of vessels ranging from small pleasure craft, sailboats, small tribal fishing boats, and commercial tug and tow, and mega yachts. Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed positions may do so at anytime, but are advised to use caution as the area surrounding the bridge has numerous construction craft mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:21 Mar 19, 2015 Jkt 235001 and equipment occupying half of the navigational channel.

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)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for not using the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) Process. The Coast Guard, with recommendations from the Pittsburgh Ice Committee (comprised of Army Corps of Engineers—Pittsburgh District, National Weather Service, Marine Safety Unit Pittsburgh, and Chairperson of the Waterways Navigation Committee), has established a safety zone on all waters of the Allegheny Rivers within the COTP Pittsburgh Zone. This safety zone will remain in effect February 26, 2015, until April 1, 2015 or ice conditions within the COTP Pittsburgh Zone have improved, whichever occurs earlier. This safety zone is the result of significant ice formation within the navigable channels of the Allegheny River, due to extended periods of subfreezing temperatures. Waterway users will be informed of the decisions by the Pittsburgh Ice Committee during the E:\FR\FM\20MRR1.SGM 20MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The South Park highway bridge is a double 
bascule span drawbridge that requires under bridge maintenance. King 
County Road Services Division requested a deviation to the published 
drawbridge operation schedule to enable timely completion of the 
required bridge maintenance. The South Park highway bridge is located 
in the Duwamish Waterway, mile 3.8, at Seattle, WA, and provides 34.8 
feet of vertical clearance at center span while in the closed position, 
30 feet of vertical clearance at the extreme east and west ends of the 
navigable channel, and unlimited vertical clearance with half of the 
bascule bridge in the fully open position. Vertical clearances are 
referenced to mean high-water elevation (MHW). Horizontal clearance is 
128 feet. However, horizontal clearance may be restricted by 
construction barges.
    The normal operation schedule for the bridge is in 33 CFR 117.1041, 
which specifies that the draws of each bridge across the Duwamish 
Waterway shall open on signal, except the draw of the South Park 
highway bridge, mile 3.8, which need not be opened for the passage of 
vessels from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday 
through Friday, except Federal holidays.
    The deviation period is effective from 12:01 a.m. on March 17, 2015 
to 11:59 p.m. on March 28, 2015, and allows the drawbridge to remain 
closed to mariners needing a full channel double bascule opening. For 
mariners that only require a single leaf, half channel, drawbridge 
opening, such an opening will be given upon signal. A drawtender will

opening, mariners may utilize any of the following methods: (1) Via VHF

    Waterborne traffic on this stretch of the Duwamish waterway 
consists of vessels ranging from small pleasure craft, sailboats, small 
tribal fishing boats, and commercial tug and tow, and mega yachts. 
Vessels able to pass under the bridge in the closed positions may do so 
at anytime, but are advised to use caution as the area surrounding the 
bridge has numerous construction craft and equipment occupying half of 
the navigational channel. The bridge will be able to open half of the 
bridge for emergencies, and there is no immediate alternate route for 
vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will also inform users of the waterway 
of the change in operating schedule for the bridge through our Local 
and Broadcast Notices to Mariners 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 effective 
period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating 
regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.
