Long Bridge Environmental Impact Statement Review

(Washington, D.C.) -- The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) invite the public to an informational meeting to present the Preferred Alternative for the Long Bridge Project. FRA and DDOT are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the Project to consider alternatives and evaluate the potential impacts of those alternatives on the environment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. This meeting is also a part of the concurrent consultation for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

About the Long Bridge Project: The Long Bridge Project consists of potential improvements to the bridge corridor and related railroad infrastructure located between the RO Interlocking near Long Bridge Park in Arlington, Virginia and the L'Enfant Interlocking near 10th Street SW in Washington, DC. The Long Bridge Corridor is owned and operated by CSX Transportation (CSXT), a Class I freight railroad. Amtrak and VRE currently use the bridge, in addition to CSXT freight.

The purpose of the Project is to provide additional long-term railroad capacity to improve the reliability of railroad service through the Long Bridge Corridor. Currently, there is insufficient capacity, resiliency, and redundancy to accommodate the projected demand in future rail services. The Project is needed to address these issues and to ensure the Long Bridge Corridor continues to serve as a critical link connecting the local, regional, and national railroad network.
