Environmental Assessment (EA) is approved!
In April 2015, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) approved the EA for the Connect Cobb project for public review. Included in the EA process is a detailed evaluation of the benefits and impacts of the proposed improvements to the natural, built and social environments; preparation of ridership and travel time forecasts; and calculation of probable construction costs.
Following the close of the comment period on July 14, 2015, FTA and CCDOT will consider all comments submitted. Based on the information in the EA and the comments, FTA will make a determination on the extent of the environmental impacts.
