[FR Doc. 2018–02867 Filed 2–12–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–06–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2006–25764] Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this provides the public notice that by a letter dated December 21, 2017, Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for an extension of its waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR 232. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2006– 25764. UP originally received conditional relief in 2007 from 49 CFR 232.205, Class I brake test-initial terminal inspection, and 49 CFR 215 Freight car safety standards, for freight cars received in interchange at the United States/Mexico border crossing in Calexico, California, to permit required inspections to be conducted in El Centro, California, 10.1 miles north of Calexico. The original justification for the relief, as stated by UP, included: Inadequate capacity at the yard in Calexico, due to increased rail traffic volume; • Inability to adjust its infrastructure due to Calexico yard’s location in the middle of the city (causing the yard to be effectively ‘‘boxed in’’ by existing development and the locations of highway crossings); • The need to avoid ‘‘bottleneck’’ delays at Calexico, affecting commerce on both sides of the border; and • The elimination of choked flow of automobile traffic in Calexico, when trains stop or go very slowly across street crossings for inspections. UP’s relief was extended for an additional five years in a decision letter dated March 26, 2013. In support of its present petition to extend its relief, UP states it has been operating under the requirements set forth in the waiver for the past ten years and no adverse effect on the safety of operations has occurred.

Federal Railroad Administration

[Docket Number FRA-2006-25764]


Petition for Waiver of Compliance

    Under part 211 of Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this 
provides the public notice that by a letter dated December 21, 2017, 
Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) petitioned the Federal Railroad 
Administration (FRA) for an extension of its waiver of compliance from 
certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained 
at 49 CFR 232. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA-2006-25764.
    UP originally received conditional relief in 2007 from 49 CFR 
232.205, Class I brake test-initial terminal inspection, and 49 CFR 215 
Freight car safety standards, for freight cars received in interchange 
at the United States/Mexico border crossing in Calexico, California, to 
permit required inspections to be conducted in El Centro, California, 
10.1 miles north of Calexico. The original justification for the 
relief, as stated by UP, included: Inadequate capacity at the yard in 
Calexico, due to increased rail traffic volume;
     Inability to adjust its infrastructure due to Calexico 
yard's location in the middle of the city (causing the yard to be 
effectively ``boxed in'' by existing development and the locations of 
highway crossings);
     The need to avoid ``bottleneck'' delays at Calexico, 
affecting commerce on both sides of the border; and
     The elimination of choked flow of automobile traffic in 
Calexico, when trains stop or go very slowly across street crossings 
for inspections.
    UP's relief was extended for an additional five years in a decision 
letter dated March 26, 2013. In support of its present petition to 
extend its relief, UP states it has been operating under the 
requirements set forth in the waiver for the past ten years and no 
adverse effect on the safety of operations has occurred.
    A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications 
concerning the petition, is available for review online at
