    You need to post a copy of the September 9 Letter and Comments by Norfolk-Southern re NC3 and SEHSR. Their comments provide a withering and damning critique of the Tier II DEIS and detail the severe and harmful impacts of NC3 to our neighorhoods. Unaccounted for impacts noted include $100 million in costs to the NS Glenwood Yard and the numerous (at least 18) residential properties in our neighborhoods along the NC3 route that would be severely impacted and probably require taking. There are at least 2 along my street alone. By Norfolk-Southern’s account the cost for NC3 is grossly underestimated in terms of impacts and actual dollars to taxpayers. According to Norfolk-Southern’s analysis of their own operations and the potential impacts (and they are the ones that would know) NC3 now has a price tag that is at least $150 million more than the other feasible alternatives. NS notes that numerous other impacts and costs were not analyzed, studied, or factored into the DEIS, and thus the price for NC3 would certainly be even higher. NC3 has Got to Go!
