The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Company requested a temporary deviation for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad Bridge, mile 88.8, at Beardstown, Illinois across the Illinois Waterway. It has a vertical clearance of 19.6 feet above normal pool in the closed position. The BNSF Railroad Bridge currently operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.393(a) which requires that the bridge be maintained in the open-to-navigation position; closing only when a train needs to transit the bridge. The deviation period is from noon to 4 p.m., September 24, 2015, when the draw span will remain in the closed-tonavigation position. During this time signal upgrades will be installed. The draw span will not be returned to its fully open position until the upgrades are completed. Vessels will not be allowed to pass while the signal upgrade is in progress. The bridge can open in case of emergency. Navigation at the site of the bridge consists mainly of commercial vessels. Based on known waterway users, as well as coordination with those waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. No alternate routes are available. 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 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: August 31, 2015. David M. Frank, Bridge Administrator, Eighth Coast Guard District.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on the waters of Indian River Bay in Long Neck, DE. The safety zone will restrict vessel traffic on a portion of Indian River Bay from operating while a fireworks event is taking place. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect the surrounding public and vessels from the hazards associated with a fireworks display. rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:57 Sep 03, 2015 Jkt 235001 The Coast Guard is issuing this 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 as publishing an NPRM is impracticable given that the final details for this event were not received by the Coast Guard until August 18, 2015, and this event is scheduled for September 6, 2015. For similar reasons, 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. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 53465 B. Basis and Purpose The legal basis for the rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish regulated navigation areas and other limited access areas: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. The purpose of this safety zone is to protect mariners and spectators from the hazards associated with the fireworks display, such as accidental discharge of fireworks, dangerous projectiles, and falling hot embers or other debris. C. Discussion of the Final Rule To mitigate the risks associated with the Labor Day Long Neck Style Fireworks Display, the Captain of the Port, Delaware Bay is establishing a temporary safety zone in the vicinity of the launch site. The safety zone will encompass all waters of Indian River Bay within a 230 Yard radius of the fireworks launch platform in approximate position 38°36′35.8″ N., 075°09′04.4″ W. in Long Neck, DE. The safety zone will be effective and enforced from 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on September 6, 2015. Entry into, transiting, or anchoring within the safety zone is prohibited unless authorized by the Captain of the Port, Delaware Bay, or his on-scene representative. The Captain of the Port, Delaware Bay, or his on-scene representative may be contacted via VHF channel 16. 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 or 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. Although this regulation will restrict access to the regulated area, the effect of this rule will not be significant because: the Coast Guard will make extensive notification of the Safety Zone to the maritime public via maritime advisories so mariners can alter their plans accordingly, vessels may still be permitted to transit through the safety E:\FR\FM\04SER1.SGM 04SER1
