Download as PDF 40698 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 165 / Monday, August 28, 2017 / Rules and Regulations amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.6-mile radius of Pauls Valley Municipal Airport, Pauls Valley, OK. The segment 2.6 miles each side of the 169° bearing from the Pauls Valley NDB extending from the 6.6-mile radius to 7.6 miles south of the airport is removed due to the decommissioning of the Pauls Valley NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. This action enhances the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. Also, the title for paragraph 6005, as published in FAA Order 7400.11A, is corrected from ‘‘Class E Airspace Areas’’ to ‘‘Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward from 700 feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth’’. History The FAA published in the Federal Register (82 FR 17778 April 13, 2017) Docket No. FAA–2017–0184, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Pauls Valley Municipal Airport, Pauls Valley, OK. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. Subsequent to publication, the FAA found that the title for Class E airspace in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A was incomplete, and is corrected in this rule. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with RULES Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Pauls Valley Municipal Airport, Pauls Valley, OK, in support of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points.

Notice of temporary deviation from drawbridge regulation; modification. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has modified a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Hutchinson River Parkway Bridge across the Hutchinson River, mile 0.9 at New York, New York. This deviation is necessary to complete application of protective coating on the bridge as well as maintenance of operating machinery. This modified deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-tonavigation position for periods of up to two weeks in order to expedite work efforts. DATES: This deviation is effective without actual notice from August 28, 2017 through 12:01 a.m. on September 29, 2017. For the purposes of enforcement, actual notice will be used from 12:01 a.m. on August 22, 2017 until August 28, 2017.

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 40699 The New York City Department of Transportation, the owner of the bridge, requested a temporary deviation from the normal operating schedule to facilitate application of protective coating to the bridge as well as maintenance of operating machinery. The Hutchinson River Parkway Bridge, across the Hutchinson River, mile 0.9 at New York, New York has a vertical clearance of 30 feet at mean high water and 38 feet at mean low water in the closed position. The existing drawbridge operating regulations are listed at 33 CFR 117.793(b). On May 1, 2017, the Coast Guard published a temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Hutchinson River, New York, NY’’ in the Federal Register (82 FR 20257). On July 6, 2017, the Coast Guard published a modified temporary deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Hutchinson River, New York, NY’’ in the Federal Register (82 FR 31254). Under that modified temporary deviation, the draw of the Hutchinson River Parkway Bridge would remain closed to navigation for a period not to exceed 14 days; the draw would then open for vessels in accordance with established operating regulations for a period not to exceed 7 days, after which the cycle would repeat. Between September 1, 2017 and September 29, 2017, the draw would remain closed to navigation for a period not to exceed 7 days; the draw would then open for vessels in accordance with established operation regulations for another 7 days, after which the cycle would repeat. In the interest of expediting work efforts and closing the project out this year, the New York City Department of Transportation has requested that between August 18, 2017 and September 29, 2017 the draw of the Hutchinson River Parkway Bridge remain closed to navigation for a period not to exceed 14 days; the draw will then open for vessels in accordance with established operating regulations for a period not to exceed 7 days, after which the cycle will repeat. Vessels that can pass under the bridge without an opening may do so at all times. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies. There is no 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 bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transit to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation.
