Record of Decision Released (NEC)

The Federal Rail Administration has released a Record of Decision on it’s Tier One Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). This is similar to the EIS review process Norwalk underwent with the Walk Bridge Project. Unfortunately, opportunities for public participation were not well promoted.

The Selected Alternative appears to still contain a highly controversial new track line between West Farms (Westport CT) and New Rochelle (NY) that would be built in the right of way alongside the I-95 highway route. This would be in addition to the rail tracks that already run through Norwalk.
