Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations COTP Captain of the Port DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register MEDOT Maine Department of Transportation NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On August 21, 2018, the Maine Department of Transportation (MEDOT) notified the Coast Guard that it will be removing bedrock in the areas between Rutherford Island and Bristol Neck underneath The Gut Bridge. The removal operations include removing bedrock from between the bridge abutments and areas near the navigation channel both upstream and downstream of The Gut Bridge. To remove the bedrock workers will need to utilize the waterway underneath the bridge span and prohibit people and vessels from entering the safety zone at various times. Removal operations are expected to take place between 8 November 2018 and 31 March 2019. However, we only anticipate a continuous 35 day full closure of the waterway. The COTP Northern New England has determined that the potential hazards associated with the removal operations will be a safety concern for anyone transiting within a 50-yard radius of the center point of The Gut Bridge. In response, on September 27, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Zone; The Gut, South Bristol, ME’’ (83 FR 48748). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action related to this safety zone. During the comment period that ended on October 29, 2018, we received no comments. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 because immediate action is needed to respond to the potential safety hazards associated with bedrock removal operations near The Gut Bridge which are scheduled to commence on November 8, 2018. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority in 33 U.S.C. 1231. The COTP Northern New England has determined that potential hazards associated with the bedrock removal operations will be a safety concern for anyone transiting within a 50-yard radius of the center point of the bridge. The purpose of this rule is to ensure the safety of vessels and personnel within a 50-yard radius of the center point of The Gut Bridge before, during, and after the bedrock removal operations. IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes, and the Rule As noted above, we received no comments on our NPRM published September 27, 2018. There are no changes in the regulatory text of this rule from the proposed rule in the NPRM. This rule establishes a safety zone from 12:01 a.m. on November 8, 2018 to 11:59 on March 31, 2019. While the safety zone would be effective throughout this period, it would only be enforced during periods of active bedrock removal operations. The safety zone would include all navigable waters from surface to bottom within a 50 yard radius from the center point of The Gut Bridge between Rutherford Island and Bristol Neck in South Bristol, ME. During times of enforcement, no vessel or person would be permitted to enter the safety zone without obtaining permission from the COTP Northern New England or a designated representative. The Coast Guard will notify the public and local mariners of this safety zone through appropriate means, which may include, but are not limited to, publication in the Federal Register, the Local Notice to Mariners, and Broadcast Notice to Mariners via marine Channel 16 (VHF–FM) in advance of any enforcement. IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and E:\FR\FM\15NOR1.SGM 15NOR1
