Rush Line BRT Project
Environmental Assessment public comment period now closed — thank you for your comments!
The Rush Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project reached a major milestone on May 11, 2021 with the publication of the Environmental Assessment. The Environmental Assessment documents the project’s potential transportation, social and environmental benefits and impacts; identifies mitigation strategies for anticipated impacts; and satisfy the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act and Minnesota Environmental Policy Act. It is the culmination of three years of planning, design, environmental review and community engagement led by Ramsey County in collaboration with local and federal partners. The document is available on the Environmental Process page.
The Environmental Assessment was available for public comment between May 11 and June 25, 2021. All comments received are now being reviewed by the Federal Transit Administration and Ramsey County, the lead federal and local agencies for the Rush Line BRT Project. Substantive comments will be responded to in the environmental decision document, expected to be published in fall of 2021.
