SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 Burlington Municipal Airport, Burlington, WI, to support IFR operations at the airport. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with RULES History The FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) (82 FR 40080; August 24, 2017) for Docket No. FAA– 2017–0145 to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Burlington Municipal Airport, Burlington, WI. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. Two comments were received in support of the proposal. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Sep 28, 2018 Jkt 247001 Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment. The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 amends Class E airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from a 7.4-mile) radius of Burlington Municipal Airport, Burlington, WI. Airspace redesign is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Burbun VOR, and cancellation of the VOR approach, while implementing more efficient area navigation routes within the national airspace system for the safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS Lists of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). Adoption of the Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 71 as follows: 1. The authority citation for part 71 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(f), 106(g); 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959–1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, is amended as follows: ■ Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. * Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5.a.

Bridge across Youngs Bay, mile 2.4, foot of Fifth Street, and the Lewis 
and Clark River Bridge across the Lewis and Clark River, mile 1.0. ODOT 
has requested this temporary deviation from the operating schedule 
while a rule change is being reviewed for approval. The three subject 
bridges are within one mile of each other, and currently open on signal 
for the passage of vessels with one half-hour notice by marine radio, 
telephone, or other suitable means. These three bridges are operated by 
the Lewis and Clark River bridge operator in accordance with 33 CFR 
117.899.
    This deviation will allow ODOT to operate without a bridge operator 
attending the three subject bridges until an opening request has been 
received. This deviation authorizes ODOT's bridge operator to open the 
subject bridges within two hours after receiving a request for an 
opening from 5 p.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. on Monday, including all 
Federal holidays, starting at 7 a.m. on September 22, 2018, through 7

clearance approximately 37 feet above mean high water when in the 
closed-to-navigation position. The Old Youngs Bay Bridge provides a 
vertical clearance approximately 19 feet above mean high water when in 
the closed-to-navigation position. The Lewis and Clark River Bridge 
provides a vertical clearance of 17 feet above mean high water when in 
the closed-to-navigation position. Vessels operating on Youngs Bay and 
the Lewis and Clark River range from small recreational vessels, 
sailboats, tribal fishing boats and small commercial fishing vessels.
    Vessels able to pass through the subject bridges in the closed-to-
navigation position may do so at any time. The bridges will not be able 
to open for emergencies from 5 p.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. on Monday 
unless a two hour notice is given, and there is no immediate alternate 
route for vessels to pass. The Coast Guard will inform the users of the 
waterway, through our Local and Broadcast Notices to Mariners, of the 
change in operating schedule for the bridge so that vessel operators 
can arrange their transits to minimize any impact caused by the 
temporary deviation.
    In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridges must return to 
their 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.
