This deviation will test a change to the drawbridge operation schedule, to determine whether a permanent change to the schedule is appropriate. This deviation will allow the bridge to open during nighttime hours after receiving a 12 hour advance notice. DATES: This deviation is effective from 6 a.m. on March 22, 2018 to 6 a.m. on September 17, 2018. Comments and related material must reach the Coast Guard on or before August 30, 2018. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2018–0067 using Federal eRulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov. See the ‘‘Public Participation and Request for Comments’’ portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below for instructions on submitting comments. SUMMARY: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Mr. Steven FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Fischer, Bridge Chief Administrator, Thirteenth Coast Guard District; telephone 206–220–7282, email d13-pfd13bridges@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis Par. 1. The authority citation for part 1 is amended by removing the sectional authority for § 1.163–11T, and the general authority continues to read as follows: ■ * 10785 Due to infrequent drawbridge opening requests between 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., King County (the bridge owner), has requested to open the South Park highway bridge with 12 hours advances notice between the hours of 11p.m. and 7 a.m. In addition, King County requested between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. vessels engaged in sea-trials or waterway dredging activities may request a standby drawtender, to open the bridge on demand during sea-trials and/or dredging operations, if at least a 24 hour notice is given to the drawtender. The 2017 drawbridge log book reflects the infrequent requests for drawbridge opening of the South Park highway bridge. Of the 524 openings in 2017 only 24 occurred between the hours of 11.00 p.m. and 7 a.m., this is approximately 4.5 percent. Opening from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. for 2014, 2015, 2016 ranged from 5% to 10% of all openings. The South Park highway bridge operates per 33 CFR 117.1041(a)(2). Vessels operating on the Duwamish Waterway range from small recreational, sailboats, tribal fishing boats, mega yachts and commercial tug and tow vessels. No navigational impacts are expected due to few vessels operating on this waterway at the stated hours. King County has discussed this test deviation and coordinating with all known waterway users. Vessels able to pass through the subject bridge with the span in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at any time. The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating schedule for the subject bridge so that vessel operators can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. Duwamish Waterway does not have an immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. Therefore, in the event of an emergency requiring a bridge opening any day between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., the standby bridge operator at the Fremont Bridge will respond to an opening request and have the South Park Bridge open within 45 minutes from initial notification. 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 E:\FR\FM\13MRR1.SGM 13MRR1 10786 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 49 / Tuesday, March 13, 2018 / Rules and Regulations from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35.

United States Code 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 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 it is impracticable. We must establish this safety zone by March 5, 2018 and lack sufficient time to provide a reasonable PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 comment period and then consider those comments before issuing the rule. 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 and contrary to the public interest because the event will take place before the 30 days and this rule is necessary to provide for public safety against the potential hazards associated with this cargo transfer operation. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The Captain of the Port Sector Ohio Valley (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with a cargo transfer operation taking place at Redstone Arsenal during the period from March 5, 2018 through March 16, 2018 will be a safety concern for all navigable waters of the Tennessee River between mile markers (MMs) 322.0 and 325.0. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of life on the navigable waters in the temporary safety zone before, during, and after the cargo transfer operations. IV. Discussion of the Rule This rule establishes a temporary safety zone from March 5, 2018 through March 16, 2018, or until the cargo operation is completed, whichever comes first. The temporary safety zone will cover all navigable waters of the Tennessee River between MMs 322.0 and 325.0. Transit into and through this area is prohibited during periods of enforcement. The periods of enforcement will be prior to, during, and 30 minutes after any vessel movement and cargo transfer operations at Redstone Arsenal. The Coast Guard was informed that the operations will take place during daylight hours over approximately two days. Safety zone enforcement times will be announced via Broadcast Notice to Mariners (BNM), Local Notices to Mariners (LNM), or through other means of public notice and at least 1 hour notice will be provided before each enforcement period. The duration of the temporary safety zone is intended to ensure the safety of life and vessels on these navigable waters before, during, and after the cargo transfer operations taking place at Redstone Arsenal. All vessels intending to transit the Tennessee River between MMs 322.0 and 325.0 from March 5, 2018 through March 16, 2018 must contact the COTP or a designated representative to request permission to transit at a time when critical operations E:\FR\FM\13MRR1.SGM 13MRR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background, Purpose and Legal Basis

    Due to infrequent drawbridge opening requests between 11 p.m. to 7 
a.m., King County (the bridge owner), has requested to open the South 
Park highway bridge with 12 hours advances notice between the hours of 
11p.m. and 7 a.m. In addition, King County requested between the hours 
of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. vessels engaged in sea-trials or waterway 
dredging activities may request a standby drawtender, to open the 
bridge on demand during sea-trials and/or dredging operations, if at 
least a 24 hour notice is given to the drawtender. The 2017 drawbridge 
log book reflects the infrequent requests for drawbridge opening of the 
South Park highway bridge. Of the 524 openings in 2017 only 24 occurred 
between the hours of 11.00 p.m. and 7 a.m., this is approximately 4.5 
percent. Opening from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. for 2014, 2015, 2016 ranged 
from 5% to 10% of all openings. The South Park highway bridge operates 
per 33 CFR 117.1041(a)(2).
    Vessels operating on the Duwamish Waterway range from small 
recreational, sailboats, tribal fishing boats, mega yachts and 
commercial tug and tow vessels. No navigational impacts are expected 
due to few vessels operating on this waterway at the stated hours. King 
County has discussed this test deviation and coordinating with all

with the span in the closed-to-navigation position may do so at any 
time.
    The Coast Guard will also inform the users of the waterway through 
our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners of the change in operating 
schedule for the subject bridge so that vessel operators can arrange 
their transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary 
deviation. Duwamish Waterway does not have an immediate alternate route 
for vessels to pass. Therefore, in the event of an emergency requiring 
a bridge opening any day between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., the standby bridge 
operator at the Fremont Bridge will respond to an opening request and 
have the South Park Bridge open within 45 minutes from initial 
notification.
    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
