Document Description
The project involves modifications to the SMART rail project, which proposes passenger rail services along an existing railroad right-of-way extending approximately 70 miles drom Cloverdale in Sonoma County to Larkspur in Marin County. Project components that have changed since certification of the SMART project Final EIR in 2006 include: addition of weekend rail service; potential use of Light Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) instead of Heavy DMUs; alternative sites for the Novato South station; addition of segments of bicycle/pedestrian pathway adjacent to the SMART rail line; and modified cumulative impacts scenario.
