SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Alameda County Public Works Agency has requested a temporary change to the operation of the High Street Drawbridge, mile 6.0, over Oakland Inner Harbor Tidal Canal, at Alameda, CA. The bridge provides a vertical clearance of 16 feet above Mean High Water in the closedto-navigation position. The bridge currently operates under 33 CFR 117.181. Navigation on the waterway is commercial and recreational. The bridge will be secured in the closed-to-navigation position, October 26, 2015 through November 25, 2015, Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., due to replacement of the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 center span lock. During nights and weekends, the bridge will be able to open upon 2 hours advance notice with single leaf openings. During working hours a 15-foot wide scaffold at midchannel will reduced vertical clearance by 9 feet. 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 for shallow draft vessels through San Leandro Bay. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway by our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the bridge so they 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.

Temporary final rule. AGENCY: The Coast Guard is establishing temporary safety zones around the POLAR PIONEER and NOBLE DISCOVERER, two vessels associated with Royal Dutch Shell’s (Shell) Arctic oil drilling and exploration operations, as well as any vessel actively engaged in towing or escorting those vessels, while they are located in the U.S. Territorial and Internal Waters of the Sector Puget Sound Captain of the Port Zone. The safety zones created by this rule are necessary to ensure the mutual safety of all waterways users including the specified vessels and those individuals that may desire to exercise their First Amendment rights relating to Shell’s Arctic oil drilling and exploration operations. SUMMARY: This rule is effective without actual notice from November 5, 2015 through December 31, 2015. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from the date the rule was signed, October 23, 2015, through November 5, 2015.

Executive Order FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking U.S.C. United States Code PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 68445 II. Background Information and Regulatory History 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 the vessels at issue will be arriving in late October and a safety zone is needed at that time to help ensure the safety of all waterway users. 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. For reasons identical to those described above, delaying the effective date until 30 days after publication would be impracticable since the regulation is immediately necessary to help ensure the safety of all waterway users. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The legal basis for this rule is the Coast Guard’s authority to establish limited access areas is: 33 U.S.C. 1231; 50 U.S.C. 191; 33 CFR 1.05–1, 6.04–1, 6.04–6, and 160.5; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. POLAR PIONEER and NOBLE DISCOVERER are Shell contracted vessels that are returning to the Puget Sound region as a part of demobilizing from oil drilling and exploration operations in the Arctic over the spring and summer of 2015. In the spring of 2015 a significant amount of First Amendment activity related to Shell’s arctic activities took place in both Washington and Oregon and such activity may occur again when the vessels are in the Puget Sound. The previous First Amendment activity included the unauthorized boarding of a Shell contracted vessel on the high seas by Greenpeace members, the formation of a ‘‘kayak flotilla’’ in the Puget Sound to advocate against Shell’s operations in the region including an attempt to block POLAR PIONEER from leaving Seattle, Washington, and the use of a ‘‘kayak flotilla’’ as well as Greenpeace members hanging from a bridge in Portland, Oregon to prevent another Shell contracted vessel from departing.
