The FRA was the lead agency for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process for the Project. FRA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the initial Phase I of the Project on January 30, 2013. Subsequently, on April 15, 2013, FRA published in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement. Although the Draft EIS was initiated for Phase II of the Project, the document analyzes the cumulative effects of both phases of the Project since train operations will cover the full corridor between Miami and Orlando. The FRA issued the Draft EIS on September 19, 2014. FRA issued the Final EIS on August 4, 2015.  For more project information, visit the FRA website or Brighline AAF:
