AVAILABILITY AND USE OF ABANDONED RIGHTS OF WAY. TASK 2. INVENTORY OF ABANDONED RIGHTS OF WAY
As a part of the study of the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976, an inventory was developed of all railroad rights of way abandoned in the period 1970-1976 which (1) are over 1.0 mile in length outside Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA's), or over .25 mile inside SMSA's; and (2) retain their linear character in terms of physical characteristics and ownership patterns. The inventory of abandonments includes the identification of the owner of record and an evaluation of the topography, characteristics, condition, approximate value and alternative use suitability. The possible alternate uses for the inventoried abandonments were determined by using the alternate use suitability criteria methodology developed under Task 1.
