The next phase of
the Green Line to the Airport is now beginning project
development. A Transitional Analysis was conducted in
November 2010 and that study re-evaluated and refined some
of the previously made assumptions including track design,
station placement, patronage, operating plans and costs. RT
received funding now to move forward with developing the
Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (DEIR/S) and
preparing information for the federal "New Starts" process.
The purpose of this effort is to further develop and
document the environmental issues and potential mitigation
strategies while engaging the community in helping to refine
the locally preferred alternative (LPA). This effort will
continue through 2015.
