What We’re Doing
Designing and constructing a second platform up to 700 Feet to accommodate full-length VRE trains.
How It Will Help
Adding a second platform will allow trains to stop at the two platforms on either track and in either direction for optimal operational efficiency. It will also give customers easy access to both platforms via a new pedestrian overpass with stairs and elevators on each platform.
The improvements 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 DC2RVA planning study.
How It Is Funded
Funding for this project is provided by Federal and State Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvements (CMAQ), State Rail Enhancement Funds (REF), and State Smart Scale Funds.
