The line traverses U.S. Postal Service Zip Codes 63110 and 63108.1 According to Bi-State, the line does not contain federally granted rights-ofway. Any documentation in Bi-State’s possession will be made available promptly to those requesting it. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line R. Co.— Abandonment—Goshen, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979).

On November 2, 2009, Bi-State certified to the Board that it has satisfied the newspaper publication requirement. Therefore, November 2, 2009, will be considered the official filing date of the petition for exemption.
