NEW! UPRR Fact Sheet on Double Track Project 2/2/15 UPDATE on UPRR Double Track Proposal
The Corps has determined the UPRR Second Mainline project appears to meet the thresholds of the 2012 Nationwide Permits. As such, the Corps is evaluating the proposal as multiple Nationwide Permit 14’s (Linear Transportation Projects), and will not be issuing a Public Notice. The Corps may re-evaluate our approach to the permit evaluation if we receive new or different information about potential impacts to aquatic resources.
