In Spring 2022, VPRA began a Feasibility Study (the “Study”) to determine the future of the rail bridges (the “Bridges”) over King Street and Commonwealth Avenue in the City of Alexandria. The study considers the future of the bridges in terms of short-, medium-, and long-term design options. The Study was conducted to determine the existing conditions, project purpose and needs, and to screen the impacts of the design options created for the Bridges.
The Study is a collaborative effort. VPRA is the Study lead and is partnering with CSX Transportation (CSXT), and passenger rail operators to ensure that the design of the adjacent projects at the Alexandria Station and for the VPRA-led Alexandria Fourth Track project are appropriately coordinated.
The Study will be coordinated with stakeholders, reviewing agencies, and the public in Fall 2022.
