Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 53146 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 203 / Friday, October 19, 2018 / Notices HOV Project: Wireless Communications Facility Removal and Relocation (hereafter ‘‘re-evaluation’’). The action(s) by FHWA and the laws under which such actions were taken, are described in the re-evaluation and the associated agency records. That information is available by contacting FHWA at the addresses provided above. The project proposed to improve safety and mobility for people and goods across Lake Washington by replacing the SR 520 Portage Bay and Evergreen Point bridges and improve existing roadway between Interstate 5 (I–5) in Seattle and Evergreen Point Road in Medina spanning 5.2 miles. The Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project was published in January 2011 and the Record of Decision (ROD) was issued in August 2011. Since issuance of the FHWA ROD, the design and construction approach has been refined such that wireless communications facilities collocated with the Montlake 76 Service Station and Montlake Boulevard Market property would need to be removed to complete construction of the Montlake Phase. A new temporary wireless communications facility will be constructed along Lake Washington Boulevard East near East Miller Street and 26th Avenue East for the duration of SR 520 construction to replace the service provided by the removed facilities. The re-evaluation considering this refinement was issued on September 4, 2018. It identifies and documents potential effects associated with the refinement. This notice only applies to the re-evaluation.

ACTION: Notice of final disposition. AGENCY: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant Castignoli Enterprises’ (Castignoli) application for a limited 5-year exemption to allow a sleeper berth to be installed in the bed of a Ford F350 pickup truck that, when operated in combination with certain trailers, is a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). A sleeper berth installed in the bed of the pickup truck does not meet the access, location, exit, communication, or occupant restraint requirements for sleeper berths as prescribed in the FMCSRs. The Agency has determined that allowing the sleeper berth to be installed in the bed of the pickup would not have an adverse impact on safety and that adherence to the terms and conditions of the exemption will likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation. DATES: This exemption is applicable October 19, 2018 and ending Thursday, October 19th, 2023.

Docket: For access to the docket to read background documents or comments submitted to notice requesting public comments on the exemption application, go to www.regulations.gov at any time or visit Room W12–140 on the ground level of the West Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC, between 9 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53147 a.m. and 5 p.m., ET, Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The online Federal document management system is available 24 hours each day, 365 days each year. The docket number is listed at the beginning of this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background FMCSA has authority under 49 U.S.C. 31136(e) and 31315 to grant exemptions from certain parts of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. FMCSA must publish a notice of each exemption request in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(a)). The Agency must provide the public an opportunity to inspect the information relevant to the application, including any safety analyses that have been conducted. The Agency must also provide an opportunity for public comment on the request. The Agency reviews safety analyses and public comments submitted, and determines whether granting the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level that would be achieved by the current regulation (49 CFR 381.305). The decision of the Agency must be published in the Federal Register (49 CFR 381.315(b)) with the reasons for denying or granting the application and, if granted, the name of the person or class of persons receiving the exemption, and the regulatory provision from which the exemption is granted. The notice must also specify the effective period and explain the terms and conditions of the exemption. The exemption may be renewed (49 CFR 381.300(b)). Castignoli’s Application for Exemption Castignoli applied for an exemption from 49 CFR 393.76(a)(3), (b)(2), (c), (d), and (h) to allow a sleeper berth to be installed in the bed of a Ford F350 pickup truck. A copy of the application is included in the docket referenced at the beginning of this notice. Section 393.76 of the FMCSRs provides various requirements for sleeper berths installed in in CMVs. Specific to Castignoli’s exemption application: 1. Section 393.76(a)(3), ‘‘Access,’’ requires a sleeper berth to be constructed so that an occupant’s ready entrance to, and exit from the sleeper berth is not unduly hindered. 2. Section 393.76(b)(2), ‘‘Location,’’ requires a sleeper berth located within the cargo space of a motor vehicle to be securely compartmentalized from the remainder of the cargo space. 3. Section 393.76(c), ‘‘Exit from the berth,’’ requires a direct and ready E:\FR\FM\19OCN1.SGM 19OCN1
