Regulatory History and Information 33 CFR Part 165 [Docket Number USCG–2015–0570] RIN 1625–AA00 Safety Zone; 520 Bridge Construction, Lake Washington; Seattle, WA Coast Guard, DHS. Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on Lake Washington around the east span of the 520 Bridge in Seattle, Washington due to ongoing construction. The safety zone is necessary to ensure the safety of the maritime public and workers involved in the bridge construction when construction barges are located in the east span of the bridge. The safety zone will prohibit any person or vessel from entering or remaining in the safety zone unless authorized by the Captain of the Port or his Designated Representative. SUMMARY: This rule is effective without actual notice from July 8, 2015 through September 4, 2015. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from June 22, 2015 until July 8, 2015.

You may also visit the Docket Management Facility in Room W12–140 on the ground floor of the Department of Transportation West Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this rule, call or email Ryan Griffin, Waterways Management Division, Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound; telephone (206) tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jul 07, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 publishing an NPRM would be impracticable, as delayed promulgation to accommodate a notice and comment period would endanger the safety of the maritime public and workers involved in the bridge construction. 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. Delaying the effective date until 30 days after publication would be impracticable, as doing so would endanger the safety of the maritime public and workers involved in the bridge construction. B. Basis and Purpose The 520 Bridge is the longest floating bridge in the world with a span of 1.4 miles across Lake Washington supported by 33 pontoons. The 520 Bridge is being replaced in order to upgrade the bridges floating pontoons for larger ones. During the bridge replacement project the east span on the 520 Bridge will at times require construction barges to block the waterway that runs beneath that span of the bridge. As a result, the Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone to ensure the safety of the maritime public and workers involved in the bridge construction when the east span is being used by construction barges. PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 C. Discussion of the Final Rule The safety zone established in this rule encompasses all waters within 100 yards of the east span of the 520 Bridge, located on Lake Washington and is effective from June 22, 2015, through September 4, 2015, when a construction barge is present in the safety zone. Vessels wishing to enter the safety zone must request permission to do so from the Captain of the Port by contacting the Joint Harbor Operations Center at 206– 217–6001 or VHF Channel 16. If permission for entry is granted, vessels must proceed at a minimum speed for safe navigation. D. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes and executive orders. 1. Regulatory Planning and Review This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of Executive Order 12866 or under section 1 of Executive Order 13563. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under those Orders. This rule is not a significant regulatory action as the safety zone established by it is both limited in size and duration and there is an alternative route for vessels with an air draft that permits safe passage under the west span of the bridge. 2. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This rule will affect the following entities, some of which may be small entities: The owners or operators of vessels intending to transit the affected waterway during the time the safety zone is in effect. This safety zone will not have a significant economic impact E:\FR\FM\08JYR1.SGM 08JYR1
