Rolling Road Platform Extension
This project extends the existing platform at Rolling Road Station in Fairfax County to accommodate longer trains and provide associated canopy modifications. Extending the platform will permit full-length trains to platform all their doors at Rolling Road, allowing passengers to board and exit the train much quicker. The proposed expansion project will occur entirely within the Norfolk Southern right-of-way, which cuts down on potential environmental and community impacts.
A site visit was held on August 8, with the project consultant and VRE Information Technology, Safety and Security, and Facilities and Operations staff. Team members were able to identify possible issues and constraints associated with planning and design for the platform extension. They also discussed lessons learned from similar projects, one of which is coordination with local jurisdictions and counties. VRE will be collaborating with Fairfax County about their plans for potential access and parking improvements at Rolling Road.
