Background and Purpose The Coast Guard published a Notice of Study in the Federal Register of December 05, 2014 entitled, ‘‘Port Access Route Study (PARS) in the Chukchi Sea, Bering Strait and Bering Sea’’. This original notice of study announcement stated the comment period would end on June 3, 2015; however, on February 19, 2015 the Coast Guard issued a notice in the Federal Register which errantly stated the comment period would end on August 18, 2015. The Coast Guard placed a correction notice in the Federal Register informing the public of the error but because this error was caused by the Coast Guard we are extending the public comment period through August 18, 2015 to ensure all interested members of the public are able to submit their comments to the docket.
