FEDERAL RAILROAD ADMINISTRATION SETS DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL HEARINGS ON PROPOSED HIGH SPEED RAIL2018-01-02

A series of public meetings being conducted by the Federal Railroad Administration on the proposed High Speed Rail in Texas will be taking place in January and February in the 10 counties the rail would pass through. The meeting for Navarro County is slated for Monday, January 29, 2018 from 5 to 9 pm at new Corsicana Middle School on FM 744 adjacent to Tiger Stadium.

The meetings will include a one hour open house from 5 to 6 pm when members of the public can talk with representatives of the Federal Railroad Administration and Texas Central Railroad, the firm wanting to build the high-speed rail line from Dallas to Houston. At 6 pm a formal public hearing will be held, followed by questions from the audience.

The Railroad Administration recently announced its preferred route for the railroad, within an existing utility right-of-way, that would cut through Navarro County generally just east of Blooming Grove. The high-speed rail project has met with opposition in the rural counties the railway passes through, citing property rights and public safety concerns. Navarro County Commissioners have gone on record as opposing the project.

Again, that public hearing and meeting of the Federal Railroad Administration on the proposed high speed rail is set for 5 to 9 pm on Monday, January 29, 2018, at the new Corsicana Middle School on FM 744.
