Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project Supplemental Environmental Reports

Environmental Review of Mid-Coast Trolley Impacts to San Diego Fairy Shrimp

SANDAG has prepared a supplemental environmental document for the Mid-Coast Trolley project that evaluates a previously unidentified impact to San Diego fairy shrimp, a federally listed endangered species. Called the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Supplement to the Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (Supplement), this document discloses project impacts to San Diego fairy shrimp that were detected adjacent to the existing railroad tracks during surveys in 2014. The Supplement also identifies proposed mitigation.

The Supplement will be available for a 45-day public review and comment period from July 18 to September 2, 2014. Comments during this review period must be limited to the analysis of impacts to the fairy shrimp.

The public comment period for the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Subsequent Environmental Impact Report concluded on July 17, 2013. 

The document identifies potential impacts that may result from the implementation of the project, as well as proposed mitigation measures to address impacts.

To facilitate public comment on the document, SANDAG hosted four public meetings and one public hearing during June 2013 in locations throughout the Mid-Coast Corridor. These meetings provided an opportunity for the public to learn more about the project and offer comments.
