The Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, July 20 in Newburgh, N.Y. Metro-North Railroad and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and study partners will present the preliminary findings of a two-step Alternatives Analysis process.
The two-step detailed screening process has identified a short list of the most viable alternatives. These would be evaluated in greater detail in the next phase of the project. Some of the alternatives that will be identified at the end of this two-step process may be considered for implementation in the near future without the need for DEIS-level analysis.
As part of an extensive outreach effort, this event provides an additional opportunity for the public to provide input on the results of the screening process and allows continued involvement in the project.
