Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register OMB Office of Management and Budget NPRM Notice of Proposed Rulemaking(Advance, Supplemental) § Section U.S.C. United States Code AICW Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway FL Florida FDOT Florida Department of Transportation II. Background Information and Regulatory History On August 2, 2019, we published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Pierce, FL’’ in the Federal Register (84 FR 37810). There were six comments received on the NPRM. This NPRM was preceded by two six-month test deviations published in the Federal Register. On August 30, 2018, the Coast Guard published the first Test Deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Pierce, FL’’ in the Federal Register (83 FR 44233). The majority of the 113 comments received were in support of scheduled openings; however, most felt the bridge still opened too frequently. Subsequently, on March 21, 2019, the Coast Guard published an alternate Test Deviation entitled ‘‘Drawbridge Operation Regulation; Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Pierce, FL’’ in the Federal Register (84 FR 10411). The 33 comments received were in favor of the alternate test deviation. III. Legal Authority and Need for Rule The Coast Guard is issuing this rule under authority 33 U.S.C. 499. The A1A North Causeway Bridge across the AICW, mile 964.8 in Fort Pierce, St Lucie County, FL is a bascule bridge. It has a vertical clearance of 26 feet at mean high water in the closed position and a horizontal clearance of 90 feet. The bridge currently operates under 33 CFR 117.5. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), who owns and operates the A1A North Causeway Bridge, has requested a rule to allow for scheduled drawbridge openings. There has been an increase in vehicular traffic over the bridge in recent years due to residential development along the beach. Placing the bridge on regularly scheduled openings will allow for more efficient and economical operation of the bridge given the volume of vehicular traffic crossing the bridge. PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 IV. Discussion of Comments, Changes and the Final Rule During the first test deviation, the majority of 113 comments received were in support of scheduled openings. The test provided for the bridge to open on signal except that from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, with the exception of Federal Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays, the draw will open three times per hour: on the hour, 20 minutes past the hour and 40 minutes past the hour. However, most felt the bridge was still opening too frequently. A review of the bridge tender logs did not support the claim that the bridge was opening too frequently. However, the logs did show the openings tended to be twice per hour as opposed to three times per hour. In addition, the majority of comments recommended scheduled openings during the evening and on weekends. During the alternate test deviation, all 33 comments received were in favor of the alternate operating schedule that allowed for around the clock openings on the hour and half hour. Based on the comments received from the test deviations, a NPRM was published to allow for around the clock openings on the hour and half hour. Of the six comments received, five were in favor of the scheduled openings. One commenter felt that a twice per hour opening was restrictive and may compromise safe navigation due to tidal flow. The commenter proposed two schedules that would restrict bridge openings during daylight hours and provide on demand openings at all other times. These proposals were similar to the first test deviation. The Coast Guard considered the options but determined that the proposed rule strikes the correct balance between relieving traffic congestion while ensuring safe navigation and therefore decided against adopting the propsed suggestions. It is the Coast Guard’s opinion that this rule meets the reasonable needs of marine navigation while having a positive effect on vehicular traffic. The rule allows for more efficient and economical operation of the bridge. V. 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 Executive Orders and we discuss First Amendment rights of protesters. A.
