Notice To Rescind Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental 
Impact Statement for the GA 400 Transit Initiative in Fulton County, 
Georgia

AGENCY: Federal Transit Administration (FTA), DOT.

ACTION: Rescind Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental impact 
statement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FTA in cooperation with the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid 
Transit Authority (MARTA) is issuing this notice to advise the public 
that the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an

[[Page 35707]]

Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed public 
transportation improvement project in Fulton County, Georgia is being 
rescinded.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Stan Mitchell, Environmental 
Protection Specialist, Federal Transit Administration Region IV, 230 
Peachtree Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30303, phone 404-865-5643, email 
stanley.a.mitchell@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FTA, as lead federal agency, and MARTA 
published a NOI on March 31, 2015 (80 FR 17147) to prepare an EIS for 
the MARTA GA 400 Transit Initiative project. This project would extend 
the existing north-south rail Heavy Rail Transit (HRT) line northward 
from the North Springs MARTA Station to Windward Parkway near the 
Fulton/Forsyth County border.
    Since that time, FTA and MARTA have reevaluated the transit need in 
the corridor and have determined that a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) option 
is more suitable. Based on this change in the transit mode, FTA is 
rescinding the March 31, 2015 NOI. The environmental impacts of the BRT 
service along on GA 400 will be evaluated in a yet-to-be-determined 
document. No changes will be made to the HRT services as described in 
the March 31, 2015 NOI. Comments and questions concerning the proposed 
action should be directed to FTA at the address provided above.

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 5323(c); 40 CFR 1501.7.

Yvette G. Taylor,
Regional Administrator, FTA Region IV.
