Fredericksburg Line Projects


Current Projects


Alexandria Station Improvements

We're removing the timber pedestrian grade crossing across Track 3 (closest to the station) and Track 2, adding elevators to both platforms and adjusting the platform elevations to make them ADA-compliant.

Brooke Station Improvements

We're designing and constructing platform improvements to accommodate full-length VRE trains.

Crystal City Station Improvements

A reconfigured station with a longer platform served by two tracks would remove an operational bottleneck and expand train capacity in the most heavily trafficked part of the CSXT RF&P Subdivision. It will also improve the safety and reliability of the railroad.

Franconia-Springfield Station Improvements

The proposed improvements include lengthening the existing west platform adjacent to WMATA Metrorail and lengthening/widening the existing east platform to accommodate an eight-car train consist.

L'Enfant North and South Storage Tracks

We're converting existing side tracks both north and south of L’Enfant Station so that they can be used to temporarily store trains during the middle of the day.

Leeland Road Station Improvements

This improvement project will involve the design and construction of 700-foot long side and island platforms. A new pedestrian overpass will be added with stairs and elevators on each platform will allow for cross-track passenger circulation.

Lifecycle Overhaul and Upgrade

We're building a new maintenance facility to conduct heavy maintenance on-site.

Long Bridge Feasibility and Environmental Studies

The purpose of this project is to provide additional railroad capacity across the Potomac River.

Lorton Station Second Platform

We're designing and constructing a second, 700-foot-long island platform at Lorton Station, across the tracks from the current platform

Midday Storage Facility

We're planning, designing and constructing a permanent midday storage facility for VRE trains that travel to Washington, DC.

Penta-Platforms Station Improvements

The Penta-Platforms Project will add capacity to the CSXT RF&P Subdivision by generally extending platforms and/or adding second platforms at five VRE Fredericksburg Line stations.

Potomac Shores Station

This new VRE station will be a key component of Potomac Shores’ emerging town center.

Quantico Station Improvements

VRE is designing and constructing an island platform, pedestrian bridges; extension of the existing platform; and track modifications. Improvements are being coordinated with the ongoing Arkendale to Powell’s Creek third track project being implemented by the Commonwealth of Virginia and CSX.

Rippon Station Improvements

Designing and constructing two new platforms just north of the existing station up to 700 Feet to accommodate full-length VRE trains.

Station Facilities Projects

Status update of VRE facilities projects as reported in the VRE CEO Report.

TVM Upgrade

We now have an upgrade underway which will effectively replace every major component in the system, leaving just the stainless steel cabinets from the original system.
