The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that Space Florida is conducting further analysis of the proposed site and the FAA will no longer prepare an EIS for this proposed project, at this time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Railroad Administration Federal Aviation Administration VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:37 Apr 07, 2020 Jkt 250001 Under part 211 of title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), this document provides the public notice that on March 13, 2020, the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad Inc. (DGVR) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 215, Railroad Freight Car Safety Standards. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2010–0181. DGVR is operator of the West Virginia Central Railroad via contractual agreement with the West Virginia State Rail Authority (WVSRA), which includes the operations of the Cass Scenic Railroad (CSR), in Cass, West Virginia. The passenger cars for which DGVR is seeking relief are the fleet of historic freight cars converted for passenger tourist service on the CSR. Specifically, DGVR seeks FRA approval per 49 CFR 215.203(a) to allow 15 passenger cars—formerly freight cars, including four flat cars (Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4), nine 40-foot steel frame cars (Nos. 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 15), and two cabooses (Nos. 9 and 14)—that are over 50 years old to operate on track owned by the WVSRA. Because the cars would be used for historic tourist operations, DGVR also requests to waive the stenciling requirements outlined in 49 CFR 215.303. DGVR explains the cars will be limited to 10 miles per hour and will not be used in interchange. A copy of the petition, as well as any written communications concerning the petition, is available for review online at www.regulations.gov and in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Docket Operations Facility, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590. The Docket Operations Facility is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays. Interested parties are invited to participate in these proceedings by submitting written views, data, or comments. FRA does not anticipate scheduling a public hearing in PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19793 connection with these proceedings since the facts do not appear to warrant a hearing. If any interested parties desire an opportunity for oral comment and a public hearing, they should notify FRA, in writing, before the end of the comment period and specify the basis for their request. All communications concerning these proceedings should identify the appropriate docket number and may be submitted by any of the following methods: • Website: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the online instructions for submitting comments. • Fax: 202–493–2251. • Mail: Docket Operations Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, W12–140, Washington, DC 20590. • Hand Delivery: 1200 New Jersey Ave. SE, Room W12–140, Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal Holidays. Communications received by May 26, 2020 will be considered by FRA before final action is taken. Comments received after that date will be considered if practicable. Anyone can search the electronic form of any written communications and comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the comment (or signing the document, if submitted on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). Under 5 U.S.C. 553(c), DOT solicits comments from the public to better inform its processes.
