Submission Text
As a former resident of Roosevelt, Utah and a driver that hauled crude oil for many years between the Uintah Basin and the Wasatch Front, I believe this railroad will be a benefit to the Basin and the environment. It will also increase the number of jobs available to the trucking community, as they will haul to the railhead instead of the long single loads to SLC. It will reduce the risk of environmental impacts in various places along Hwy. 40 and reduce traffic as well. I strongly encourage the railroad be built.
