SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD
Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 775X)
CSX TRANSPORTATION, INC.—ABANDONMENT EXEMPTION—IN CLARK, FLOYD, LAWRENCE, ORANGE, & WASHINGTON COUNTIES, IND
Decided: January 19, 2018
CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT), filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 C.F.R. § 1152 subpart F–Exempt Abandonments to abandon an approximately 62.3‑mile rail line on its Northern Region, Louisville Division, Hoosier Subdivision between milepost 00Q 251.7, near Bedford, and milepost 00Q 314.0, near New Albany, in Clark, Floyd, Lawrence, Orange, and Washington Counties, Ind. (the Line). The Line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Codes 47150, 47172, 47106, 47143, 47165, 47167, 47108, 47452, 47446, and 47421 and serves the stations of Orleans (milepost 00Q 262), Leipsic (milepost 00Q 267), Campbellsburg (milepost 00Q 273), Salem (milepost 00Q 284), Pekin (milepost 00Q 295), and Borden (milepost 00Q 300). On January 8, 2018, notice of the exemption was served and published in the Federal Register (83 Fed. Reg. 936).
The exemption is scheduled to become effective on February 7, 2018. However, the abandonment authority in this proceeding will not become effective until completion of the environmental review process, which may be delayed by a shutdown of the Federal government due to a lapse in appropriations. Thus, the abandonment authority will not become effective, and any relevant filing or Board deadlines on or after January 20, 2018, will be postponed, until further order of the Board.
It is ordered:
1. The abandonment authority in this proceeding will not become effective, and any relevant filing or Board deadlines on or after January 20, 2018, will be postponed, until completion of the environmental review process and further order of the Board.
2. This decision is effective on the date of service.
By the Board, Scott M. Zimmerman, Acting Director, Office of Proceedings.
