Coalition Closes Online Comment to STB

Sunday, June 4, 2017

The Embankment Preservation Coalition has closed down its online comment (click on Read the letter at the link page to see the comment) to the Surface Transportation Board.  More than 2500 supporters endorsed the comment, calling for preservation of the Harsimus Branch.  These endorsers joined hundreds of others who recently signed hard-copy comments or sent letters, and thousands who previously commented on environmental issues.

The Surface Transportation Board is currently conducting a review of historic resources that would potentially be affected by its actions.  The review is mandated by the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106.
