[Docket No. AB 33 (Sub-No. 330X)]


Union Pacific Railroad Company--Discontinuance of Service 
Exemption--in Port of Los Angeles' San Pedro Subdivision, Los Angeles, 
CA

    Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) has filed a verified notice of 
exemption \1\ under 49 CFR part 1152 subpart F--Exempt Abandonments and 
Discontinuances of Service to discontinue a 3.6-mile freight rail 
operating easement over a portion of the San Pedro Industrial Lead 
a.k.a The West Basin Lead on the San Pedro Subdivision (the Line) in 
Los Angeles County, CA. The Line extends from milepost 4.00 north of 
Front Street and east of the Gaffey Street Lead past milepost 6.60, 
where the track splits, to the end of both the eastern and western 
leads as shown on Revised Exhibit C to the UP's supplemental notice 
filed on August 3, 2016. The total mileage for the Line includes both 
leads. The Line traverses United States Postal Service Zip Code 90731.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ This notice was originally filed on July 25, 2016. On August 
2, 2016, and August 3, 2016, UP filed supplemental information 
clarifying the milepost designations and the distance on the Line on 
which it proposes to discontinue its freight easement service.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    UP has certified that: (1) No local or overhead traffic has moved 
over the Line for at least two years; (2) there is no need to reroute 
any traffic 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 (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 September 13, 2016, 
unless stayed pending reconsideration.\2\ 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) 
\3\ must be filed by August 22, 2016.\4\ Petitions to reopen must be 
filed by September 1, 2016, with the Surface Transportation Board, 395 
E Street SW., Washington, DC 20423-0001.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Although UP states in its verified notice that the proposed 
consummation date of this transaction is September 10, 2016, this 
transaction cannot be consummated until September 13, 2016 (50 days 
from its filing date). 49 CFR 1152.50(d)(2).
    \3\ Each OFA must be accompanied by the filing fee, which is 
currently set at $1,600. See 49 CFR 1002.2(f)(25).
    \4\ Because this is a discontinuance 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 UP's 
representative: Mack H. Shumate, Jr., Union Pacific Railroad Company, 
101 North Wacker Drive, Room 1920, Chicago, IL 60606.
    If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, 
the exemption is void ab initio.

    Decided: August 5, 2016.

Proceedings.
