ABSTRACT: The Mississippi Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration, and Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate a proposed new freight rail line that would provide a direct connection between the Port Bienville Railroad and the Norfolk Southern rail line near Interstate 59, north of NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center (Project No. FRA‐0023‐00(003)/105494 101000). This railroad would provide a second Class I rail connection to Port Bienville and the Port Bienville Industrial Park. The project is approximately 24 miles in length and located in the southwestern part of the state of Mississippi.
