I live on Montevideo Rd near the proposed site at Montevideo. I have counted no less than 220 detached homes within 1/3 mile of the site, 50 on Montevideo Court alone. The 24/7 noise, i.e. metal-on metal clanging. loud crane backup whistles, truck horns and airbrakes by itself will make life miserable for affected residents,not to mention the constant traffic spewing diesel fumes on forest ave, wigley ave and montevideo rd. Many wiil find themselves automatically under water on their mortgages. How can one move away–who will buy your house? I believe CSX has already internally decided on which of the 4 sites they want but will not disclose this because it would probably violate the NEPA process and give affected residents more time to mobilize an effective opposition. A rep from AA county exec Leopold’s office said at a Jessup Improvement Association meeting on June 6 that Mr Leopold wasn’t even aware of the proposed site on the Anne County line at Montevideo. I understand that as long as a company can demonstrate to the Federal gov’t that they have followed the NEPA process they are never turned down. No doubt CSX will manipulate the NEPA process to their advantage: there is big money to be made doulble stacking flatbed rail cars with tractor trailer freight.
