The temporary schedule change will allow the bridge owner to conduct needed maintenance and painting on the lift span portion of the bridge. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections to the proposed temporary deviation were raised. Vessels able to pass through the bridge in the closed position may do so at anytime. The bridge will be able to open for emergencies in accordance with 33 CFR 117.31(b). There is no immediate alternate route for vessels to pass. 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 bridge so 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:51 Nov 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 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: November 6, 2018. Carl T. Hausner, District Bridge Chief, Eleventh Coast Guard District.

Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard is amending the existing recurring fireworks safety zone on the Delaware River Adjacent to Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This amendment allows the Coast Guard to enforce the safety zone at this location throughout the entire year. The Coast Guard will notify the public of upcoming enforcement of the zone through publication of a Notice of Enforcement in the Federal Register and Broadcast Notice to Mariners. This change will expedite public notification of events at the location and ensure the protection of the maritime public and event participants from the hazards associated with fireworks displays in the Delaware River adjacent to Penn’s Landing.

Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code II. Background Information and Regulatory History The Coast Guard routinely receives requests for fireworks displays in the Delaware River Adjacent to Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a result, the Coast Guard previously issued a rule creating a recurring safety zone location for this location, listed as entry (a)16 in the table to 33 CFR 165.506. That regulation lists possible days of anticipated enforcement as July 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th; Columbus Day; December 31st, and January 1st. In recent years, however, the number of firework events at this location have significantly increased. To date in the year 2018 there have been 13 requests for fireworks events at this location— many more than the anticipated number of approximately 3 events covered by the current regulation. The additional requests fall outside the enforcement dates listed in the CFR. As a result, the Coast Guard had to issue numerous temporary safety zones to cover the additional events that fall outside of the coverage of the current regulation. In accordance with good cause exceptions found in 5 U.S.C. 553, the rules creating these temporary safety zones are generally not preceded by notice of proposed rulemaking due to the short lead-time often provided to the Coast Guard. In response, on September 21, 2018, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) titled ‘‘Safety Zone; Penn’s Landing Fireworks, Delaware River, Philadelphia PA’’ (83 FR 47852). There we stated why we issued the NPRM, and invited comments on our proposed regulatory action. During the comment period that ended October 22, 2018, we received one comment. 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 Delaware Bay (COTP) has determined that potential hazards associated with the fireworks to be used in this type of display will be a safety concern for anyone within a 500 yard radius of the fireworks barge. The purpose of this rule is to ensure safety of vessels and the navigable waters in the safety zone before, during and after the scheduled event. E:\FR\FM\19NOR1.SGM 19NOR1
