"Penta-Platforms" Station Improvements
The Penta-Platforms Project adds capacity to the CSXT RF&P Subvision 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 in July and a scope and schedule meeting was held in August. NTP was issued August 4. VRE has been coordinating flagging availability with CSXT to support future field work, including surveying, geotechnical work, environmental analyses andtasks related to NEPA. After flagging services have been secured and field activities are scheduled, a comprehensive kick off including contractors and major stakeholders will occur. In the meantime, alternate weekly calls among the key parties continue in an effort to coordinate engineering and planning efforts. Engineering coordination includes in-person workshops where needed, the first of which occurred on August 24.
