C100 Supplemental Comments Requesting a CSX Rerouting VA Ave Tunnel

Monte Edwards

The alternative routing analysis in the DEIS is based on erroneous, false, and misleading information, which has precluded the meaningful alternatives analysis necessary under NEPA.  Pursuant to 40 C.F.R. § 1502.9(a), a revised DEIS is required, as well as a revised Appendix B.  The revised Appendix B should be prepared by an independent rail consultant with NEPA experience. Further, because the DEIS accepted the information contained in Appendix B without verifying its accuracy, that same independent consultant (someone different from Parsons Brinckerhoff) should prepare the revised DEIS.
