Background

The FHWA is rescinding the notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal to study the relocation of the CSX Railroad through the six counties of the Mississippi Gulf Coast—Jackson, Harrison, Hancock, Greene, Stone, and Pearl River Counties with logical termini at the Alabama and Louisiana State lines.

The purpose of the CSX Study was three-fold: Identify the best feasible corridor for relocation of the CSX Railroad in Mississippi; obtain the necessary environmental clearances; and, demonstrate the applicability of remote sensing technologies to environmental analysis for transportation planning projects and decision making. Of paramount importance to this effort was the public participation process.

Federal-aid funds are no longer available for the proposed action.
