SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 makes a clerical correction to the headers and descriptions of Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA, and Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA. History The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E surface airspace descriptors for Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA, and Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA required clarification as published in FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points. The headers of Class E surface area airspace were incorrect in the Order. Also, a clerical amendment in the legal description also is made to the airspace designation, by adding verbiage to the description, for clarity. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, and 6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. 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.

The Lancaster VORTAC is removed from Lancaster, PA header, and the Williamsport Regional Airport ILS localizer is removed from the Williamsport, PA, header, as neither are used in the descriptors. Also, ‘‘That airspace extending from the surface’’ is added to the Class E surface airspace descriptor of both airports, and ‘‘to a 7mile radius of the airport ‘‘is added to the Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area of Williamsport Regional Airport’s descriptor. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. 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. Therefore, this regulation: (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. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The owner of the bridge, the New York City Department of Transportation, requested a temporary deviation to facilitate punch list work involving the Borden Avenue Bridge control house roof repairs. The Borden Avenue Bridge across Dutch Kills, Queens, has a vertical clearance in the closed position of 4 feet at mean high water and 9 feet at mean low water. The existing bridge operating regulations are found at 33 CFR 117.801(c). This temporary deviation allows the Borden Avenue Bridge to stay in the closed position from 12:01 a.m. on September 28, 2018 to 11:59 p.m. on November 17, 2018. At no time can the bridge open to marine traffic. No one has signaled to request that this bridge open to marine traffic since December 15, 2014. The bridge will not be able to open for emergencies and there is no immediate 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 transits to minimize any impact caused by the temporary deviation. 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 from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. Dated: October 11, 2018. C.J. Bisignano, Supervisory Bridge Management Specialist, First Coast Guard District.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 makes a clerical correction to the headers and descriptions of 
Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA, and Williamsport Regional Airport, 
Williamsport, PA.

History

    The FAA Aeronautical Information Services branch found the Class E 
surface airspace descriptors for Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA, and 
Williamsport Regional Airport, Williamsport, PA required clarification 
as published in FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting 
Points. The headers of Class E surface area airspace were incorrect in 
the Order. Also, a clerical amendment in the legal description also is 
made to the airspace designation, by adding verbiage to the 
description, for clarity.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002, and 
6004, respectively, of FAA Order 7400.11C dated August 13, 2018, and 
effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.

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.

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by correcting the headers and descriptors of Class E surface 
airspace of Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA, and Williamsport Regional 
Airport, Williamsport, PA. The Lancaster VORTAC is removed from 
Lancaster, PA header, and the Williamsport Regional Airport ILS 
localizer is removed from the Williamsport, PA, header, as neither are 
used in the descriptors. Also, ``That airspace extending from the 
surface'' is added to the Class E surface airspace descriptor of both 
airports, and ``to a 7-mile radius of the airport ``is added to the 
Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area 
of Williamsport Regional Airport's descriptor.
    This is an administrative change and does not affect the 
boundaries, or operating requirements of the airspace, therefore, 
notice and public procedure under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary.

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. 
Therefore, this regulation: (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. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
