U.S. Surface Transportation Board Grants Final Approval for Construction and Operation of Uinta Basin Railway

Uinta Basin, Utah (Dec. 15, 2021) – The Uinta Basin Railway reached a major milestone today
with the final approval from the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB) to construct and
operate the railway, subject to the Board’s environmental mitigation measures. The Uinta Basin
Railway (UBRY) will enable efficient, environmentally sound railway transportation service to
northeastern Utah’s industries and businesses, and the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and
Ouray Reservation.

“On behalf of our Seven County Infrastructure (SCIC) board members, I would like to thank the
STB for their comprehensive review of the project.” said SCIC Executive Director Mike McKee.
“It is important to note that we would not be where we are today if it were not for the superb
cooperation of our stakeholders, tribes, federal, state, and local agencies, our elected officials,
and the public. We appreciate all of the hard work that has already gone into the railway and
look forward to the continued hard work that will bring this project to completion.”
