M-1 Rail project receives FTA clearance

Posted on April 23, 2013

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) completed the environmental clearance for Detroit M-1 Rail’s 3.3-mile Woodward Avenue Streetcar Project.

With the issuance of the Amended Record of Decision (ROD), the project is allowed to move forward to the next phases of design, right-of-way acquisition and construction. This is the last approval step under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

“On behalf of the entire M-1 Rail team and our community partners I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the FTA for confirming the streetcar project complies with National Environmental Policy Act and Federal transit laws,” said M-1 Rail President/CEO Matthew P. Cullen.

Now that the process for approval of the Amended ROD has been completed, the M-1 Rail organization continues to strengthen its team with the hiring of Jeni Norman as chief financial officer and by electing eight new members to its board of directors. These announcements come about two weeks after hiring a chief administrative officer and director of governmental & community affairs.
