NJ TRANSIT is conducting the Long Slip Fill and Rail Enhancement project in accordance with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) procedures for transit projects. A Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA)/Section 4(f) De Minimis Finding has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The document is based on an EA/Section 4(f) Evaluation that was prepared in 2000 for an earlier version of the project. The Supplemental EA/Section 4(f)De Minimis Finding includes a description of the current project and its anticipated impact on a broad range of environmental issues including potential impacts to historical / cultural resources and quality of life in the project area.
In October 2016, the FTA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) following its review of the Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA) / Section 4(f) De Minimis Finding prepared by NJ TRANSIT.
