STB Gives GLBT More Time to File Route Info

Great Lakes Basin Transportation has received an extension of time to file with the U.S. Surface Transportation Board a document showing alternative routes for its proposed Chicago freight bypass line.

STBGLBT will now have until Sept. 20 to file the documents with the STB’s Office of Environmental Analysis.

The original deadline had been Aug. 29. The STB had told GLBT that it must provide a listing of alternative alignments or explain why it can’t provide those.

The STB said it needs that information before it can issue a final scope of study for an environmental impact statement.

GLBT has proposed building a freight-only route between southern Wisconsin and northwestern Indiana that it said would relive rail traffic congestion in Chicago.
