Environmental Assessment/Environmental Impact Evaluation for the New Haven – Hartford – Springfield High-Speed Intercity Rail Program
The Environmental Assessment/Environmental Impact Evaluation (EA/EIE) for the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield Rail Program is now available. Copies of the EA/EIE are also available at local town halls and libraries of communities along the corridor.
The EA/EIE describes the benefits and impacts resulting from implementation of the NHHS Rail Program and identifies mitigation to address adverse impacts.
The public will have the opportunity to comment on the EA/EIE during a 45 day comment period, beginning on May 8, 2012 and ending on June 22, 2012.
Public hearings, planned for June, will provide a forum for public comments on the EA/EIE. Comments can also be submitted directly on the program website or by mail. CTDOT will respond to all EA/EIE comments in the final document to be submitted to the FRA by the end of June for consideration and approval by the FRA.
Written questions or comments sent by mail can be directed to:
Mr. Mark W. Alexander,
Transportation Assistant Planning Director,
