I would expect it to be decommissioned in the next 20 years as is the trend with many aging nuclear plants closing. So, it may not be a problem whenever they decide to reactivate the tracks.Depends on what remains onsite after the plant is decommissioned. Maine Yankee shut down in 1996 and was completely dismantled by 2005, but there's still nuclear waste stored there (and thus a perimeter that must be kept secure) because there's nowhere else to store it. So if Seabrook shuts down in 2040, they could potentially still be storing waste there in 2060 or beyond. I'd like to think that we'll have better storage or reuse options for spent fuel by 2060, but the federal government moves very slowly, and with changes in leadership every 4-8 years, priorities frequently shift.
