Document Description
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Division of Rail and Mass Transportation, and Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), have prepared a joint NEPA/CEQA Tier 1/Program Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (Tier 1/Program EIS/EIR) to: 1) evaluate passenger rail service options between Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) in Los Angeles County, California and the City of Coachella in Riverside County, California, which are collectively known as the Coachella Valley San Gorgonio Pass Rail Corridor Service Program (Program), and 2) provide alternative travel choices to automobile ownership along the 144-mile long Coachella Valley-San Gorgonio Pass Rail Corridor (Program Corridor). The Draft Tier 1/Program EIS/EIR has been prepared by FRA, Caltrans, and RCTC to analyze the potential significant environmental impacts of the proposed Program and to identify potential mitigation strategies that would inform future, site-specific mitigation measures to avoid or reduce significant impacts during subsequent (future) Tier 2/Project-level analyses.
