Comment period for high-speed rail extended

Rochester Business Journal

The public comment period for high-speed rail’s draft environmental impact statement has been extended to the end of April, officials announced Friday.

The environmental report outlines plans for improving passenger and freight rail service between Niagara Falls and New York City.

The public comment period was scheduled to end Monday but has been extended because of community requests, state Department of Transportation said.

The new deadline is April 30.

“The community is critically important in helping us plan for effective transportation improvements, and we’re pleased that this proposal is generating so much interest,” DOT commissioner Joan McDonald said in a statement.

More than 500 people, officials said, attended six public hearings this month, including one in Rochester on March 7. More than 250 comments have been submitted.
