The Lorton Platform Extension Project
The Lorton Platform Extension Project will lengthen the existing platform to accommodate eight-car trains. The CSXT Construction Agreement (that includes the Right of Entry for the project) was executed at the end of May. In August, the contractor cleared the trees to prepare for the Fiber Optic Relocation, which consists of utility location and construction layout staking. With the availability of CSXT Flaggers on September 19, the Fiber Optic Relocation was able to begin on September 22 and was completed in October. VRE issued a Notice to Proceed (NTP) to the platform extension contractor on November 2.
