Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Rigolets Pass, Slidell, LA, 57353-57354 [2017-26094]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 5, 2017 / Rules and Regulations ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ In this temporary rule, TTB is delaying the compliance date for the requirement that the tax class statement ‘‘Tax class 5041(b)(6)’’ appear on containers of wine for which the hard cider tax class is claimed, from January 1, 2018, to January 1, 2019. TTB finds that prior notice and comment is unnecessary because a delayed compliance date will provide additional time to industry members to comply with that labeling requirement. TTB is issuing this temporary rule without a delayed effective date pursuant to authority under section 4(c) of the APA (5 U.S.C. 553(d)). TTB finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(1) to dispense with the effective date limitation in 5 U.S.C. 553(d). This temporary rule grants a one-year exemption by delaying the compliance date for a labeling statement requirement that would otherwise become effective on January 1, 2018. Accordingly, the effective date of this temporary rule is December 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CSX Transportation requested a temporary deviation from the operating schedule of the CSX Railroad Swing Bridge across Rigolets Pass, mile 0.0, near Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. This deviation is necessary to replace the center pivot bearing and the wedge machinery on the south center and southwest end of the swing span. For the purposes of this deviation, the bridge will be allowed to remain in the closed-to-navigation position from 4 a.m. on Tuesday, December 12, 2017, through 4 a.m. on Friday, December 15, 2017, and a one-hour advance notice for openings to facilitate passage of vessel traffic from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., each day, on December 18, 2017, through December 22, 2017, and from January 2, 2018 through January 12, 2018. At all other times the bridge will operate in accordance with 33 CFR 117.5. The vertical clearance of the bridge is 14.5 feet above mean low water (MLW), elevation 11.9 feet above mean high water (MHW) in the closed-tonavigation position. Navigation on the waterway consists of tugs with tows, commercial fishing vessels and some recreational crafts. For the duration of the repair work, vessels will not be allowed to pass through the bridge in the closed-tonavigation position and will not be able to open for emergencies. The alternate route for vessels to pass is the Pearl E:\FR\FM\05DER1.SGM 05DER1 57354 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 5, 2017 / Rules and Regulations River.

In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35, 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: ACTION: On October 10, 2017, the commercial fishing vessel PACIFIC PARADISE ran aground approximately 400 yards southwest of Kaimana Beach, in the navigable waters of Mamala Bay, Oahu, Hawaii. The Coast Guard established a temporary safety zone extending 500 yards in all directions around the grounded vessel to facilitate vessel salvage operations. To date, the vessel remains aground. Accordingly, effective December 1, 2017, the Coast Guard hereby extends the temporary safety zone for an additional thirty days to facilitate ongoing salvage and subsequent removal operations. The extension of this temporary safety zone is necessary to protect personnel, vessels and the marine environmental from potential hazards associated with ongoing operations to salvage and remove a grounded vessel in this area. Entry of vessels or persons into this zone is prohibited unless specifically authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Honolulu. DATES: This rule is effective without actual notice from December 5, 2017 until 8:00 a.m. on December 31, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this rule, call or email Lieutenant Commander John Bannon, Waterways Management Division, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Honolulu at (808) 541–4359 or john.e.bannon@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: II. Background Information and Regulatory History On October 10, 2017, the commercial fishing vessel PACIFIC PARADISE ran aground approximately 400 yards southwest of Kaimana Beach, in the navigable waters of Mamala Bay, Oahu, Hawaii at position 21°15.69′ N.; 157°49.49′ W. On October 11, 2017, the Coast Guard established a seven-day temporary safety zone encompassing all waters extending 500 yards in all directions around the grounded vessel to facilitate vessel salvage operations and protect personnel, vessels and the marine environment from the hazards associated with them. Due to the emergent nature of the grounding and subsequent removal operations, the temporary final rule (TFR) was not initially published in the Federal Register. On October 18, 2017, the temporary safety zone was extended for two additional weeks to account for delays in salvage operations due to ocean and weather conditions. The extension of the temporary safety zone was published in the Federal Register (82 FR 49111) on October 24, 2017. On November 1, 2017, the safety zone was extended for one additional month to account for delays in salvage operations due to ocean and weather conditions. The safety zone extension was published in the Federal Register (82 FR 51767) on November 8, 2017. Ongoing challenges with the salvage efforts and weather necessitate a third extension of the temporary safety zone for an additional thirty days. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The temporary safety zone continues to encompass all waters extending 500 yards in all directions around the grounded fishing vessel located approximately 400 yards southwest of Kaimana Beach at position 21°15.69′ N.; 157°49.49′ W. When the vessel is off the reef, the stationary safety zone will shift to a moving safety zone extending 500 yards in all directions around the vessel and continue until December 31, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. or until the removal operation is complete, whichever is earlier. The Coast Guard is extending the existing temporary safety zone 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 initial estimate to salvage the vessel from the grounding was estimated at one week or less. Immediate action remains needed to respond to the safety hazards associated with this fishing vessel salvage effort for an estimated additional thirty days. Therefore, publishing an NPRM is impracticable and contrary to public interest. We are issuing this rule, and under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for making it effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. For the same reasons stated in the preceding paragraph, delaying the effective period of this temporary safety zone would be impracticable and contrary to the public interest. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule pursuant to 33 U.S.C. 1231. On October 10, 2017, the Coast Guard was informed the commercial fishing vessel PACIFIC PARADISE ran aground in Mamala Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, near Waikiki’s Kaimana Beach. The COTP Honolulu determined that potential hazards associated with the salvage and removal operations, including high winds and seas, constituted a safety concern. Accordingly, the COTP Honolulu established a temporary safety zone extending 500 yards in all directions around the grounded vessel to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment during ongoing salvage and removal operations.
