CSX Transportation, Inc.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On December 4, 2015, the President signed the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act into law (Pub. L. 114–94). Section 11503 of the FAST Act requires the Secretary of Transportation (Secretary), among other things, to apply, to the greatest extent feasible, the project development procedures described in 23 U.S.C. 139 (Efficient Environmental Reviews for Project Decisionmaking) to railroad projects requiring the Secretary’s approval under NEPA. The Secretary must incorporate into FRA regulations and procedures for railroad projects aspects of the 23 U.S.C. 139 project development procedures, or portions thereof, which increase the efficiency of the review of railroad projects consistent with section 11503. In addition, section 11503 requires the Secretary to publish a notice of proposed rulemaking to propose new and existing categorical exclusions for railroad projects the Secretary must approve under NEPA. See 49 U.S.C. 24201(c). In light of section 11503’s requirements, FRA is evaluating whether to apply 23 CFR part 771 to railroad projects. Part 771 currently prescribes FHWA and FTA procedures for implementing NEPA, including 23 U.S.C. 139 requirements. In FRA’s view, applying part 771 to railroad projects may be the most efficient way to comply with section 11503 and promote consistency in FTA, FHWA, and FRA environmental reviews. In addition, FRA would not need to develop entirely new NEPA regulations for railroad projects. FRA, in conjunction with FHWA and FTA, would engage in a rulemaking to revise part 771 to make it applicable to railroad projects before such an approach would become effective. FRA seeks input from interested parties, stakeholders, and the public on this proposal. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\09JNN1.SGM 09JNN1

SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD

[Docket No. AB 55 (Sub-No. 760X)]


CSX Transportation, Inc.--Discontinuance of Service Exemption--in 
Boone County, W.Va.

    CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) has filed a verified notice of 
exemption under 49 CFR pt. 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue service over an approximately 
2.9-mile rail line on CSXT's Southern Region, Huntington Division, Pond 
Fork Subdivision, the Robinson Creek Industrial Track, from the 
connection with CSXT's mainline at milepost CLK 0.0 to the end of the 
line at milepost CLK 2.9+ in Boone County, W.Va. (the Line). The Line 
traverses United States Postal Service Zip Code 26325 and includes the 
Holbrook station at milepost CLK 2.0 (FSAC 82034/OPSL 65220).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ CSXT states that this station can be closed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CSXT has certified that: (1) No local traffic has moved over the 
Line for at least two years; (2) because the Line is not a through 
route, no overhead traffic has operated, and, therefore, none needs to 
be rerouted over other lines; (3) no formal complaint filed by a user 
of rail service on the Line (or by a state or local government entity 
acting on behalf of such user) regarding cessation of service over the 
Line is pending either with the Surface Transportation Board (Board) or 
with any U.S. District Court or has been decided in favor of 
complainant within the two-year period; and (4) the requirements at 49 
CFR 1105.12

[[Page 37237]]

(newspaper publication) and 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(1) (notice to 
governmental agencies) have been met.
    As a condition to this exemption, any employee adversely affected 
by the discontinuance of service shall be protected under Oregon Short 
Line Railroad--Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, 
in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979). To 
address whether this condition adequately protects affected employees, 
a petition for partial revocation under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) must be 
filed.
    Provided no formal expression of intent to file an offer of 
financial assistance (OFA) to subsidize continued rail service has been 
received, this exemption will be effective on July 9, 2016, unless 
stayed pending reconsideration. Petitions to stay that do not involve 
environmental issues and formal expressions of intent to file an OFA to 
subsidize continued rail service under 49 CFR 1152.27(c)(2) \2\ must be 
filed by June 17, 2016.\3\ Petitions to reopen must be filed by June 
29, 2016, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 E Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,600. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \3\ Because this is a discontinue proceeding and not an 
abandonment, interim trail use/rail banking and public use 
conditions are not appropriate. Because there will be an 
environmental review during abandonment, this discontinuance does 
not require an environmental review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A copy of any petition filed with the Board should be sent to 
CSXT's representative: Louis E. Gitomer, Law Offices of Louis E. 
Gitomer, LLC, 600 Baltimore Avenue, Suite 301, Towson, MD 21204.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio.
    Board decisions and notices are available on our Web site at
