7/12/19 – PUBLIC MEETING — The Surface Transportation Board’s Office of Environmental Analysis (OEA) is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposal by the Seven County Infrastructure Coalition (Coalition) to construct and operate an approximately 80-mile rail line to connect the Uintah Basin to the interstate rail network. The Coalition has proposed three potential routes for the proposed rail line. OEA will develop the final set of alternatives to be evaluated in the EIS in the coming weeks.
To assist OEA in determining the scope of the EIS, including the final set of alternatives, OEA will hold public scoping meetings in the project area. Each meeting will begin with a 30-minute open house followed by a brief presentation by OEA and a formal public comment period during which interested parties will have the opportunity to convey oral comments. The meetings will be held at the listed dates, times, and locations.
Interested parties are invited to file scoping comments. Electronic and written comments must be received and/or postmarked by August 5, 2019 to assure full consideration during the scoping process.
For more information and to submit electronic comments, please visit the Board-sponsored project website at www.UintaBasinRailwayEIS.com.
