"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. These additional and extended platforms will service up to eight-car trains, and can be developed in the future to accommodate 10-car trains per long-term plans. Once these improvements are complete, the stations will have additional platform edges and will be ready to accommodate a future third mainline track.
The Penta-Platforms Project stations include:
1. Franconia-Springfield Station
2. Lorton Station (Completed)
3. Rippon Station
4. Brooke Station
5. Leeland Station
A GEC task order for preliminary design services is currently underway with NTP issued August 4, 2016. CSXT Flagging services are being coordinated by VRE to support surveying and geotechnical fieldwork at all five station locations. Various stakeholder meetings continue to be scheduled to increase collaboration among engineering and planning efforts.
