SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 19, 2011, the FAA published a final rule in the 
Federal Register amending and establishing nine ATS routes in the 
northeast United States (76 FR 57902). Subsequent to publication a more 
accurate alignment was calculated for the establishment of the CANDR WP 
position of RNAV route Q-480. The refined coordinates result in a minor 
change of the CANDR position that is 0.28 nautical miles (NM) north of 
the original location. This equates to a move of approximately 1,700 
feet which is well within the standard 8 NM width of RNAV routes. Since 
the coordinates in air traffic service route descriptions are rounded 
to the nearest second, the amended CANDR position is listed as ``lat. 
40[deg]58'16'' N., long. 74[deg]57'35'' W.''
    Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 2006 of FAA Order 
7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR

71.1. The RNAV route listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Correction to Final Rule

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the 
coordinates for the CANDR waypoint as published in the Federal Register 
on September 19, 2011 (76 FR 57902) (FR Doc. 2011-23839) for RNAV route 
Q-480, is corrected under the description as follows:

Paragraph 2006--United States Area Navigation Routes

* * * * *

Q-480 [Corrected]

    On page 57905, line 38, Remove ``CANDR, NJ WP (lat. 
40[deg]57'59'' N., long. 74[deg]57'29'' W.)''and insert ``CANDR, NJ 
WP (lat. 40[deg]58'16'' N., long. 74[deg]57'35'' W.)
