The Lorton Platform Extension Project
The Lorton Platform Extension Project will lengthen the existing platform to accommodate eight-car trains.
The CSXT Construction Agreement, which includes the Right of Entry for the project, was executed at the end of May 2016. In August, the contractor cleared trees to prepare for the Fiber Optic Relocation, which consists of utility location and construction layout staking. When CSXT Flaggers became available last September, the Fiber Optic Relocation was able to begin on September 22, 2016, and was subsequently completed in October 2016. VRE issued a NTP to the platform extension contractor on November 2, 2016, and continues to coordinate construction access with the Fairfax County Department of Transportation.
