The objective of this study was to prepare a Restudy Report including an environmental assessment and analysis, engineering and cost studies, and updated economic studies on various alter natives for the Cross Florida Barge Canal Project. Detailed engineering, economics and environmental results are presented in separate documents and summarized herein. An environmental impact statement was prepared to accompany the Restudy Report. The basic framework for the studies was regional in scope and included baseline conditions as well as future conditions expected with and without the alternatives studied. Study area delineation was based upon the economic , social, and environmental systems involved. The overall Restudy Report addresses all major issues that have surfaced during the history of the project. These issues are discussed in the Engineering and Economics Reports and in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and the Environmental Report and are summarized herein. PALMM.
