Arctic Directory: STB completes final FEIS for Alaska Railroad

The Alaska Railroad said Sept. 25 that the Federal Surface Transportation Board has completed the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Alaska Railroad Corp. application to construct and operate a rail line between North Pole and Delta Junction. Known as the Northern Rail Extension, the project would offer safe freight and passenger rail service to communities southeast of North Pole; support agriculture, mining and petrochemical industries; and provide year-round reliable access to military training areas. The FEIS includes a recommended route and mitigation measures to offset impacts from construction. The STB’s Record of Decision is expected by the end of October.
