Start Supplemental Information
The FTA, as the lead federal agency, in cooperation with the Regional Transportation District published a ROD on April 22, 2011 for the North Metro Corridor project, an 18-mile commuter rail and track system to connect Denver Union Station and the State Highway 7/162nd Avenue area in the Denver, Colorado area.
Since that time, RTD notified FTA that federal funds will not be utilized during the final design and construction of the project. Therefore, the FTA has determined that the ROD for the Final Environmental Impact Statement dated January 3, 2011 will be rescinded since there will be no federal action, and the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 4321, et se. and 23 Code of Federal Regulations 771 no longer apply.
Comments and questions concerning the proposed action should be directed to FTA at the address provided above.
