Download as PDF jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 198 / Friday, October 11, 2019 / Notices submit a Noise Compatibility Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the airport operator has taken or proposes to take to reduce existing non-compatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation submitted by Broward County, Florida, through its Aviation Department (BCAD) for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in 14 CFR 150.7 includes: Map 1 of 5—2018 Noise Exposure Map; Map 2 of 5—2023 Noise Exposure Map; Map 3 of 5—East Flow Fixed-Wing Flight Tracks; Map 4—West Flow Fixed-Wing Flight Track; and Map 5 of 5—Helicopter Flight Tracks; and the Final Noise Exposure Map Report and its appendices. The FAA has determined that these Noise Exposure Maps and accompanying documentation are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on October 3, 2019. FAA’s determination on the airport operator’s Noise Exposure Maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of 14 CFR part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the airport operator’s data, information or plans, or a commitment to approve a Noise Compatibility Program or to fund the implementation of that Program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a Noise Exposure Map submitted under Section 47503 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise exposure contours, or in interpreting the Noise Exposure Maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of Section 47506 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under 14 CFR part 150 or through FAA’s review of Noise Exposure Maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator that submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Oct 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 consultation is required under Section 47503 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under 14 CFR 150.21, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Copies of the full Noise Exposure Maps documentation and of the FAA’s evaluation of the maps are available for examination by appointment at the following location: Federal Aviation Administration, Orlando Airports District Office, 8427 SouthPark Circle, 5th Floor, Orlando, Florida 32819. To arrange an appointment to review the Noise Exposure Maps documentation, contact Peter Green, Federal Aviation Administration, Southern Region/Atlanta Airports District Office, 8427 SouthPark Circle, Orlando, FL 32819, (407) 487–7296.

ACTION: Notice to rescind the 2010 Record of Decision. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that the 2010 Record of Decision issued for the proposed Southern Connector/ Champlain Parkway project is being rescinded. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kenneth R. Sikora, Jr., Environmental Program Manager, Federal Highway Administration, 87 State Street, Room 216, Montpelier, Vermont 05602. Telephone: (802) 828–4573. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), is rescinding the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Southern Connector/Champlain Parkway project issued on January 13, 2010. The Notice of Intent to prepare the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) was published in the Federal Register on December 31, 2003. The ROD was issued on January 13, 2010. The FHWA, in conjunction with the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans), has determined that the ROD shall be rescinded for the following reason: Although the 2005 Draft SEIS and the 2009 Final SEIS each considered disproportionately high and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Oct 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 adverse impacts on minority and lowincome populations in accordance with Executive Order 12898, public outreach for that analysis was limited to the general public involvement associated with the NEPA process. Since the 2010 ROD, FHWA has become aware of new information about project impacts that may bear on the project decision. In order to the assess the relevance of this new information, FHWA and VTrans have decided to perform targeted public outreach to any minority and low-income populations in the project study area in order to determine whether the conclusions reached in the 2009 Final SEIS and 2010 ROD remain valid. FHWA and VTrans have also determined that the environmental justice analysis and conclusions in the NEPA review should be reassessed using the latest (2010) census data, and based on FHWA’s December 16, 2011 Guidance on Environmental Justice and NEPA. The reassessment of census data and public outreach will be performed as part of a written evaluation of the 2009 Final SEIS. The outcome of the written evaluation will assess all changes to the project as well as its setting in determining project impacts. The identified impacts will be compared to those disclosed in the 2009 FSEIS. FHWA and VTrans will assess whether or not all of the project’s environmental impacts were adequately considered, and if any of the impacts may rise to the level of significance. Based on the identification of any new impacts, and to what extent they rise to the level of significance, the written evaluation will recommend whether or not the preparation of a new Supplemental EIS would be appropriate to issue a new or an amended ROD for the project to move forward. FHWA and VTrans continue to recognize a strong need for this project. The written evaluation will provide a basis for determining the way forward to implement this project. Any future FHWA action within this project study area will comply with environmental review requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321), FHWA’s environmental regulations (23 CFR 771) and related authorities, as appropriate. Comments and questions concerning this action should be directed to FHWA at the address provided above.

[FR Doc. 2019–22306 Filed 10–10–19; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–22–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Railroad Administration [Docket Number FRA–2019–0064] Petition for Waiver of Compliance Under part 211 of title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that on September 3, 2019, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR 232.305(b)(2). FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2019–0064. Specifically, BNSF requests the same regulatory relief provided to the Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) in Docket Number FRA–2007–28454. Current regulations require railroad carriers to perform a single car air brake test (SCABT) when a car is on a shop or repair track, as defined in 49 CFR 232.303(a), for any reason and has not received a SCABT within the previous 12-month period. This also includes cars on an in-train wheel replacement track that do not require wheel replacement (if there are no FRA defects present), but may otherwise have an air date indicating it has not received a SCABT within the previous 12-month period and is in compliance with all other requirements of 49 CFR 232.305. BNSF requests relief through a change in repair track designation per 49 CFR 232.303. Specifically, BNSF requests that the in-train wheel replacement track not be designated a shop or repair track. However, BNSF proposes to continue performing a SCABT on any car undergoing an in-train wheelset replacement because of an FRAcondemnable wheel defect as defined in 49 CFR 232.305(b)(5). BNSF states that this relief would serve safety and the public good by reducing the number of wheels in service which have elevated impact readings and will therefore have a longterm positive impact on rail integrity. BNSF has an extensive wayside detector network with over 4,000 detectors with varying technologies utilized to identify deteriorating component performance. Wheel Impact Load Detectors (WILD) are a part of this network that focus specifically on car and locomotive E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1
