ABSTRACT: The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) are preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the Susquehanna River Rail Bridge Project (the Proposed Project). Located between the City of Havre de Grace in Harford County, Maryland and the Town of Perryville in Cecil County, Maryland, the Susquehanna River Rail Bridge is a critical link along one of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) designated high-speed rail corridors. The National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak), as bridge owner and operator, is providing conceptual and preliminary engineering designs in coordination with MDOT and FRA. The bridge is used by Amtrak, the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) service, and Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) to carry intercity, commuter, and freight trains across the Susquehanna River.
