The Lorton Platform Extension Project
The Lorton Platform Extension Project lengthens the existing platform to accommodate eight-car trains. The CSXT Construction Agreement (that includes the Right of Entry for the project) was executed at the end of May, allowing for CSXT Engineering Review and CSXT Flagging Support. With the availability of CSXT Flagmen on August 11 and 12, the contractor was able to clear the trees for the upcoming Fiber Optic Relocation. Now that the site has been cleared, it is ready for the fiber optic relocation, which consists of utility location and construction layout staking. This is expected to begin at the end of September.
When the fiber optic relocation has been completed, VRE will give the contractor Notice to Proceed (NTP), and the project can move forward. The NTP is anticipated for fall 2016.
