Environmental Documentation

Metro Transit anticipates publishing an Environmental Assessment (EA) in early 2019. The document will identify potential environmental, social and transportation effects from the Gold Line's construction and operations. After completion of the EA, the document will be made available for public comment. The Gold Line previously anticipated drafting and publishing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), but due to changes in the project's scope, alignment and stations that occurred in 2016, the Gold Line will instead complete an EA. More information is available at the Environmental Process page.
