Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulation. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the US 90 (Danziger) vertical lift span drawbridge across the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, mile 3.10 at New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary to conduct field measurements and other preparations for repairs and maintenance that are scheduled for later in the year. This deviation allows the bridge to remain closed-to-navigation for nine days. During this closure, the bridge will open with at least four hours notice except during scheduled curfew times. DATES: This deviation is effective from 7 p.m. on January 22, 2016, until 7 p.m. on January 31, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Contractor, C.E.C., Inc., for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD), requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule of the US 90 (Danziger) vertical lift span drawbridge across the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, mile 3.10 at New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana. The deviation was requested for the purpose of conducting field measurements and other preparations for repairs and maintenance that are scheduled for later in the year. The vertical clearance of the vertical lift span bridge is 50 feet above mean high water in the closed-to-navigation position and 120 feet in the open-tonavigation position. The bridge is governed by 33 CFR 117.458(b). This deviation is effective from 7 p.m. on January 22, 2016, until 7 p.m. on January 31, 2016. This deviation allows SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\11JAR1.SGM 11JAR1 1122 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 6 / Monday, January 11, 2016 / Rules and Regulations the bridge to remain closed-tonavigation daily except that the bridge will open if at least four hours notice is given except Monday through Friday from 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. and from 5 p.m.6:30 p.m., daily. During the closure period, the contractor will make every effort to minimize the delays to mariners by opening the bridge with less than four hour notice whenever possible. However, the bridge is not required to open with less than a fourhour notice. Marine traffic, when allowed to pass, should pass at the slowest safe speed. Navigation on the waterway consists of small tugs with and without tows, commercial vessels, and recreational craft, including sailboats. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies, and there is no immediate alternate route. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterways 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. Implementation Plan (SIP) submission from the State of Nebraska addressing the applicable requirements of Clean Air Act (CAA) section 110 for the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for Ozone (O3). CAA section 110 requires that each state adopt and submit a SIP to support implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of each new or revised NAAQS promulgated by EPA. These SIPs are commonly referred to as ‘‘infrastructure’’ SIPs. The infrastructure requirements are designed to ensure that the structural components of each state’s air quality management program are adequate to meet the state’s responsibilities under the CAA. Specifically, EPA is approving Nebraska’s SIP as it relates to section 110 (a)(2)(D)(i)(I) prongs 1 and 2, for the 2008 O3 NAAQS. This final rule is effective on February 10, 2016.

Background On November 16, 2015 (80 FR 70721), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the State of Nebraska. The NPR proposed approval of Nebraska’s submission that provides the basic elements specified in section 110(a)(2) of the CAA, or portions thereof, necessary to implement, maintain, and enforce the 2008 O3 NAAQS. Specifically, the NPR proposed approval of section 110 (a)(2)(D)(i)(I) prongs 1 and 2, for the 2008 O3 NAAQS. II. Summary of SIP Revision On February 11, 2013, EPA received a SIP submission from the state of Nebraska that addressed the infrastructure elements specified in section 110(a)(2) for the 2008 O3 NAAQS. On September 15, 2015 (80 FR 55266) EPA approved the following infrastructure elements, or portions thereof: 110(a)(2)(A), (B), (C), (D)(i)(II) (prong 3), (D)(ii), (E), (F), (G), (H), (J), (K), (L), and (M) which are necessary to implement, maintain, and enforce the 2008 O3 NAAQS, as a revision to the Nebraska SIP, and disapproved section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(II)- prong 4, as it relates to the protection of visibility. At that time, EPA did not take action on section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I)- prongs 1 and 2. Specific requirements of section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I)- prongs 1 and 2 of the CAA and the rationale for EPA’s proposed action to approve these specific provisions of the SIP submission, not previously acted on, is explained in the NPR and will not be restated here. The public comment period for the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) closed on December 16, 2015. EPA received no comments on the NPR. III. Final Action EPA is approving Nebraska’s February 11, 2013, submission addressing the requirements of the CAA sections 110(a)(1) and (2) as applicable to the 2008 O3 NAAQS. Specifically, EPA approves section 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I)— prongs 1 and 2, which are necessary to implement, maintain, and enforce the 2008 O3 NAAQS, as a revision to the Nebraska SIP. As EPA noted in the NPR, this final action fulfills EPA’s commitment to take final action as to Nebraska’s SIP submission addressing 110(a)(2)(D)(i)(I), as set forth by the court in Sierra Club v. McCarthy, 4:14– cv–05091–YGR (N.D. Cal. May 15, 2015). IV. Statutory and Executive Order Review Under the CAA the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission E:\FR\FM\11JAR1.SGM 11JAR1

the bridge to remain closed-to-navigation daily except that the bridge 
will open if at least four hours notice is given except Monday through 
Friday from 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. and from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m., daily. During 
the closure period, the contractor will make every effort to minimize 
the delays to mariners by opening the bridge with less than four hour 
notice whenever possible. However, the bridge is not required to open 
with less than a four-hour notice. Marine traffic, when allowed to 
pass, should pass at the slowest safe speed.
    Navigation on the waterway consists of small tugs with and without

will also inform the users of the waterways 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.
