Public Hearing: Chicago-Detroit/Pontiac Passenger Rail Corridor Program
The Federal Railroad Administration, in coordination with the Michigan, Indiana and Illinois departments of transportation, has prepared a Tier 1 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate passenger rail improvements for the Chicago-Detroit/Pontiac corridor. The Tier 1 Draft EIS presents the proposed project’s purpose and need, identifies reasonable route alternatives, describes the affected environment, and analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the alternatives considered, including the no-build alternative. Attend the upcoming public hearing to learn more about the Tier 1 EIS and provide feedback. For more information and to view the Draft EIS, visit www.GreatLakesRail.org
