Duluth, MN (KDAL) - The Environment Assessment (E-I-S) for the Northern Lights Express is out and it shows no mediation is necessary along the line of the train that will reconnect Duluth/Superior with the Twin Cities by way of Minneapolis.  The two year long review is posted on the NLX website and is available from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The next phase of the project is to start the preliminary engineering and there is already nine million dollars in funding available for that part of the work.

The new report predicts one point three million riders a year on the train after the first decade of operation.
