Extension of Comment Period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement

 

The Surface Transportation Board’s (Board) Office of Environmental Analysis (OEA) issued a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in the above-captioned proceeding on April 17, 2015, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published notice in the Federal Register on April 24, 2015 initiating a 60-day public comment period.  Comments were originally due by June 23, 2015.  In response to a number of requests for an extension of the comment period, OEA is issuing this Notice to advise the public and all interested parties that the comment period will be extended an additional 60 days.  Comments are now due by August 24, 2015. 

 

After the close of the extended comment period, OEA will prepare a Final EIS that responds to comments received on the Draft EIS.  When deciding whether to grant final approval of the proposed project, the Board will consider the Draft EIS, the Final EIS, and all environmental comments that are received.  Any comments previously submitted on the Draft EIS need not be resubmitted.

 

Comments submitted by mail should be addressed to:  Ken Blodgett, Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street, SW, Washington, D.C. 20423-0001, Attention: Environmental filing, Docket No. FD 30186.
