Submission Text
When the railroad was first proposed, it extended the line between Vernal and Roosevelt. This plan would allow the opportunity to many businesses in Vernal and Roosevelt and allow for other products to be shipped closer to where the businesses were. I understand having it in Myton puts it closer to the oil/gas fields but if the project is intended to help more than just the oil field in the Basin can you explain why the decision was made to shorten the line. I run a natural supplement company and getting product shipped out of the basin is a big part of my business and I am hoping the railroad will open other opportunities. Will you please provide me with clarification on the decisions to stop the line in the Myton area.
