System Enhancements

Current Projects


 

Broad Run

The Broad Run Expansion project involves several elements including: parking expansion, yard expansion, addition of a third mainline track, and platform shift

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.

Long Bridge Feasibility and Environmental Studies

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

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.

Rolling Road Platform Extension

The platform extension project, will build a 250-foot platform extension to accommodate eight-car trains.

System Plan 2040

The plan provides a framework for VRE system investments and actions VRE should pursue through 2040 to best meet regional travel needs. The system investments and service expansion recommended in the System Plan will enable VRE to carry over 40,000 new weekday trips by 2040, more than double the 19,000 daily trips carried today.

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.
