Franconia-Springfield Station Improvements

What We're Doing

Designing and construction platform extensions up to 700 feet to accommodate full-length VRE trains.

How It Will Help

Extending the platforms will better accommodate up to 8-car train consists with a forward-looking design that allows for future 10-car train consists. All doors will be able to open onto the platform for more efficient boarding and alighting with a reduction in passenger queueing within the train.

The current design does not preclude a future third mainline track as part of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation’s Atlantic Gateway design.

How It Is Funded

Funding for this project is provided by Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA).
