Public Hearing Set on Long Bridge Project in Washington

Public comment is being sought on a proposed project to rebuild the Long Bridge over the Potomac River between Washington and Virginia.

The bridge is used by Amtrak, Virginia Railway Express, Norfolk Southern and CSX and is the only railroad crossing of the river between the district and Virginia.

The Federal Railroad Administration and District of Columbia Department of Transportation recently completed a draft environmental impact statement regarding the project.

A public hearing will be held on Oct. 22 and comments are being accepted through Oct. 28.

The bridge is owned by CSX and the project will involve either rebuilding or replacing the two-track bridge, which was built in 1904.

The study examined a 1.8-mile section between RO Interlocking near Long Bridge Park in Arlington, Virginia, and the L’Enfant Interlocking near 10th Street SW in Washington.
