Tell Secretary Buttigieg: Stop the Uinta Basin Railway
Department of Transportation Secretary Buttigieg,
We, the undersigned, urge you to oppose development of the Uinta Basin Railway. If built, the Uinta Basin Railway will damage the environment and threaten public health. Constructing the 88-mile stretch of train tracks requires blasting through mountains, rerouting more than 400 rivers, and fragmenting roadless area in the Ashley National Forest, among other destructive activities.
Your opposition to the Uinta Basin Railway is particularly critical in light of the recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. This environmental disaster illuminated the dangers associated with transporting oil and hazardous materials by train.
Please do all you can to stop development of the Uinta Basin Railway.
