The Montlake Bridge across the Lake Washington Ship Canal, at mile 5.2, in the closed position provides 30 feet of vertical clearance throughout the navigation channel, and 46 feet of vertical clearance throughout the center 60-feet of the bridge; vertical clearance references to the Mean Water Level of Lake Washington. The normal operating schedule for Montlake Bridge operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.1051(e). The deviation period is from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on June 11, 2016; and from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and from 4:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. on June 12, 2016. The deviation allows the bascule span of the Montlake Bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position for the times and dates herein. Waterway usage on the Lake Washington Ship Canal ranges from commercial tug and barge to small pleasure craft. 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 for marine vessels to pass. 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 designated time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: May 10, 2016. Steven M. Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations BNM Broadcast Notice to Mariners CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code UMR Upper Mississippi River II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard is issuing this temporary 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 finds good cause 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 the Coast Guard was not notified of the event until April 19, 2016. After full review of the event details, the Coast Guard determined that action is needed to protect people and property from the safety hazards associated with a fireworks display on the Upper Mississippi River. It would be impracticable to publish a NPRM because the safety zone must be established on June 17, 2016. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. On June 17, 2016, a fireworks display will take place on the Upper Mississippi PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30179 River between mile 853.2 and mile 854.2 for the 150th Celebration of General Mills. The COTP has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks display will be a safety concern for anyone within the area that is designated as the safety zone. This rule is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in the navigable waters within the safety zone during the fireworks display. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a safety zone from 10 p.m. until 11 p.m. on June 17, 2016. The safety zone will cover all navigable waters on the Upper Mississippi River between mile 853.2 and mile 854.2. The safety zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment in these navigable waters during the fireworks display. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP or a designated representative. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive Orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive Orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This rule has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, it has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This temporary final rule establishes a safety zone that will be enforced for a limited time period. During the enforcement period, vessels are prohibited from entering into or remaining within the safety zone unless specifically authorized by the COTP or other designated representative. Based on the location and short duration of the enforcement period, this rule does not pose a significant regulatory impact. Additionally, notice of this safety zone or any changes in the planned schedule will be made via Broadcast Notice to Mariners and Local Notice to Mariners. E:\FR\FM\16MYR1.SGM 16MYR1

    The deviation period is from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 11, 2016 to 
accommodate the route of the annual Rose Festival Parade event. The 
deviation allows the upper deck of the Steel Bridge, mile 12.1, and the 
Burnside Bridge, mile 12.4, both crossing the Willamette River, to 
remain in the closed-to-navigation position and need not open for 
maritime traffic from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on June 11, 2016. Waterway usage 
on this part of the Willamette River includes vessels ranging from

to open for emergencies, and there is no immediate alternate route for 
vessels to pass. 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 bridges so that vessel operators 
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 designated 
time period. This deviation from the operating regulations is
