Late last year InsiderAdvantage wrote about the state’s plan to construct a high speed rail line connecting Atlanta and Chattanooga, and the steps that officials were taking to move it forward. The first among those was the publication of a Tier 1 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Tier 1 DEIS), released by the GDOT in conjunction with its Tennessee counterpart.
The Tier 1 DEIS offered up three possibilities for rail paths, each going up I-75 but swinging out in different directions to connect with cities like Dalton or Rome. The GDOT and TDOT held a series of public meetings to review the plans as they mulled over their options before choosing a preferred route, which would then go before the Federal Railroad Administration for approval.
