Objection To Ashley National Forest Grant Of Special Use Permit To The Uinta Basin Railway Project

UPHE is in objection with Ashley National Forest’s grant of a special use permit to allow construction of the Uinta Basin Railway. This decision allows 12 miles of the 88 mile rail expansion project to go through Ashley National Forest. These 12 miles would have a significant impact, requiring three tunnels, five bridges and roughly one mile of stream bed channeling, in addition to the visual impact of the project.
