About the Long Bridge Project:
The Long Bridge Project consists of improvements to the Long Bridge and related railroad infrastructure located between the Rosslyn (RO) Interlocking near Long Bridge Park in Arlington, Va., and the L’Enfant (LE) Interlocking near 10th Street SW in Washington, DC. The two-track Long Bridge is owned and maintained by CSX Transportation. In addition to freight trains, the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) and Amtrak also currently use the bridge.
The purpose of the project is to provide additional long-term rail capacity to improve the reliability of rail 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.
FRA and DDOT are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Long Bridge Project to consider alternatives and evaluate the potential impacts of those alternatives on the environment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).
Room E200 is located on the second floor of the DCRA building adjacent to the elevators. Bring an ID to show at the entrance in order to access the building.
- Directions from Waterfront Metro Station: A one-minute walk from the Metrorail Green line. Take the escalator/elevator to the ground level and walk straight, the building will be on your right.
