"Penta-Platforms" Station Improvements
The Penta-Platforms Project will add capacity to the CSXT RF&P Subdivision by extending platforms and/or adding second platforms at five VRE Fredericksburg Line stations (Franconia-Springfield, Lorton, Rippon, Brooke and Leeland Road). A contract was awarded to STV in July and a scope and schedule meeting was held in August. NTP was issued August 4, 2016.
VRE has been coordinating flagging availability with CSXT to support future field work, including surveying, geotechnical work, environmental analyses and tasks related to NEPA. After flagging services are secured and field activities are scheduled, a comprehensive kick off meeting for all five stations to include contractors and major stakeholders is planned for November.
Meanwhile, semi-weekly calls among the key parties continue to coordinate engineering and planning efforts. Engineering coordination includes in-person workshops where needed, the first of which occurred in August 2016.
