Notice of temporary deviation from regulations; request for comments. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Chambers Creek Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad vertical lift railroad bridge across Chambers Creek, mile 0.01, near Steilacoom in Pierce County, WA. This deviation will test a change to the drawbridge operation schedule, for the second time within the past year, to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is appropriate. DATES: This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. on July 22, 2017 to 6 a.m. on January 16, 2018. Comments and related material must reach the Coast Guard on or before January 16, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, the bridge owner, is requesting to test a deviation to the schedule of the Chambers Creek BNSF railroad vertical lift railroad bridge across Chambers Creek, mile 0.01, near Steilacoom in Pierce County, WA. Due to minimal usage of the drawbridge between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., the bridge owner has requested to test this schedule to see if it better balances the needs of marine and rail traffic. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 10ft in the closed-tonavigation position and 50ft of vertical clearance in the open-to-navigation position (reference plane is MHW elevation of 12.2 feet). The bridge currently operates under 33 CFR 117.5; which requires the bridge to open anytime when a request or signal to open is given. The following facts support BNSF’s proposal: (1) The previous test deviation from December 12, 2016 to Jun 23, 2017 had only one lift opening request (2) over the last 6 years only 2% of the subject bridge lifts have occurred between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., which equates to approximately 5 openings a year, (3) from February 2009 to June 2015 there were 1932 total openings of which only 40 occurred between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and (4) the navigation traffic consists primarily of the tenants of Chambers Bay marina (recreational users) that are members of the Chambers Bay Boating Association. The Coast Guard is publishing this temporary deviation, for a second time within a year, to test the proposed schedule change to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is appropriate to better balance the needs of marine and rail traffic. Under this temporary deviation, in effect from 6 a.m. on July 22, 2017 to 6 a.m. on January 15, 2017, the subject bridge shall open on signal, except from E:\FR\FM\20JYR1.SGM 20JYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 138 / Thursday, July 20, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. the draw shall open on signal if at least 4 hours notice is given. The bridge will be required to open as soon a possible, no later than 1 hour after notification, for vessels engaged in emergency response. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways of this temporary deviation through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners and through direct outreach with the Chambers Creek Boating Association so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass underneath the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at anytime. 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. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES II.

II. Background Information and Regulatory History Dated: July 13, 2017. Steven M. Fischer, Bridge Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District. 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 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 the Coast Guard did not receive notice of this event until two days prior to the exercise and there is an immediate need to protect the security of the naval vessels, the public, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of similar nature. It is impracticable to publish an NPRM because the zone must be established by July 8, 2017. 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. Delaying the effective date of this rule would be impracticable because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential security risks associated with naval exercises.

There will be a zone approximately 4 nautical miles wide extending from .75 nautical miles off the beach to 4 nautical miles offshore. The zone will begin approximately .4 nautical miles south of Port Everglades Inlet. The security zone is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port Miami. SUMMARY: This rule is effective without actual notice from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily from July 20, 2017 through July 21, 2017. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily from July 8, 2017 through July 20, 2017.

The Captain of the Port Miami (COTP) has determined the potential security concerns associated with naval exercises starting July 8, 2017. This rule is needed to protect naval vessels, the public, and the surrounding waterway from terrorist acts, sabotage or other subversive acts, accidents, or other causes of a similar nature while the exercise is occurring. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a security zone from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily from July 8, 2017 through July 21, 2017, while the Navy is performing the exercise. The security zone will cover all navigable waters approximately in an area 4 nautical miles wide extending from .75 nautical miles off the beach to 4 nautical miles offshore. The zone will begin approximately .4 nautical miles south of Port Everglades Inlet. No vessel or person will be permitted to enter the security zone without obtaining E:\FR\FM\20JYR1.SGM 20JYR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, the bridge owner, is 
requesting to test a deviation to the schedule of the Chambers Creek 
BNSF railroad vertical lift railroad bridge across Chambers Creek, mile 
0.01, near Steilacoom in Pierce County, WA. Due to minimal usage of the 
drawbridge between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., the bridge owner has requested 
to test this schedule to see if it better balances the needs of marine 
and rail traffic. The bridge has a vertical clearance of 10ft in the 
closed-to-navigation position and 50ft of vertical clearance in the 
open-to-navigation position (reference plane is MHW elevation of 12.2 
feet). The bridge currently operates under 33 CFR 117.5; which requires 
the bridge to open anytime when a request or signal to open is given.
    The following facts support BNSF's proposal: (1) The previous test 
deviation from December 12, 2016 to Jun 23, 2017 had only one lift 
opening request (2) over the last 6 years only 2% of the subject bridge 
lifts have occurred between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., which 
equates to approximately 5 openings a year, (3) from February 2009 to 
June 2015 there were 1932 total openings of which only 40 occurred 
between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and (4) the navigation traffic 
consists primarily of the tenants of Chambers Bay marina (recreational 
users) that are members of the Chambers Bay Boating Association.
    The Coast Guard is publishing this temporary deviation, for a 
second time within a year, to test the proposed schedule change to 
determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is appropriate to 
better balance the needs of marine and rail traffic.
    Under this temporary deviation, in effect from 6 a.m. on July 22, 
2017 to 6 a.m. on January 15, 2017, the subject bridge shall open on 
signal, except from

[[Page 33449]]

10 p.m. to 6 a.m. the draw shall open on signal if at least 4 hours 
notice is given. The bridge will be required to open as soon a 
possible, no later than 1 hour after notification, for vessels engaged 
in emergency response.
    The Coast Guard will inform the users of the waterways of this 
temporary deviation through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners 
and through direct outreach with the Chambers Creek Boating Association 
so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any 
impact caused by the temporary deviation. Vessels able to pass 
underneath the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at 
anytime.
    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.
