Southeast Rail Extension Environmental Assessment

The Southeast Rail Extension Environmental Assessment has been released.

A public meeting to discuss and comment on the EA took place August 27, 2014. See the presentation made at that meeting here.

In October 2014, the Federal Transit Administration issued a document in which it found no significant impact from the Southeast Rail Extension related to the environmental assessment of the project.

The links below open .pdf files to all of the documents related to the Environmental Assessment.
