The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD), in cooperation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers, have prepared a combined Final Environmental Impact Statement/Record of Decision and Section 4(f) Evaluation (FEIS/ROD).
The primary purpose of the combined FEIS/ROD is to present updates to the Project that have occurred since the DEIS, and to respond to substantive comments received during the DEIS public comment period. The ROD states FTA’s decision, identifies the alternatives considered in reaching the decision, and describes the means to avoid, minimize, or mitigate impacts. Mitigation plans are included in the ROD. The Final Section 4(f) Evaluation is included in the combined FEIS/ROD.
