Draft Environmental Impact Statement
The FRA signed the Draft EIS on December 15, 2017 and it was published in the Federal Register on December 22, 2017. The Draft EIS analyzed six end-to-end Build Alternatives (Alternatives A–F) as well as the No-Build Alternative. The Build Alternatives include a terminal station in Dallas and an intermediate station in Grimes County near College Station, home of Texas A&M University. The Draft EIS also evaluated three Houston terminal station options: the Industrial Site Terminal, the Northwest Mall Terminal, and the Northwest Transit Center Terminal.
The Draft EIS was available for a 60-day public comment period, which will ended on February 20, 2018. During this time, the FRA held 10 public hearings in the affected counties in Texas.
