Petitioners state that, prior to the trail opening, construction would be required to prepare the line for use as a trail. Petitioners have confirmed that they are aware that removal of rail or railroadrelated materials may not occur until completion of the exemption process, including compliance with any environmental or historic conditions that may be imposed. 2 As noted, petitioners intend that the line be developed for trail use.
