Surface Transportation Board.
Notice of Exemption.
Under 49 U.S.C. 10502, the Board conditionally exempts from the prior approval requirements of 49 U.S.C. 10901 the construction by Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCo) of a line of railroad, approximately 1,500 feet in length, in Pueblo County, CO.
The exemption will not become effective until the environmental review process is completed. Once that process is completed, the Board will issue a further decision addressing the environmental matters and making the exemption effective at that time, if appropriate, thereby allowing construction to begin. Petitions to reopen must be filed by September 12, 2000.
