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 and operation by the Six County Association of Governments of a 43-mile line of railroad between Salina, UT, and a connection with a line of the Union Pacific Railroad Company in the vicinity of Levan, UT.
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 impacts and, if appropriate, will make the exemption effective at that time, thereby allowing construction to begin. Petitions to reopen must be filed by November 15, 2001.
