ABSTRACT: On May 2, 2016, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) announced its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Project by publishing a Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register. Publication of the NOI (included as Attachment A) initiated the scoping period for the Project. Scoping is an initial step in the NEPA process where the public and agencies are provided an opportunity to review and comment on the scope of the EIS, including the Proposed Action’s purpose and need, alternatives to be studied in the EIS, environmental issues of concern, and the methodologies for the environmental analysis.
