Project Description

Potomac Creek Third Track South (Siding A) will construct approximately 4 miles of third track in Stafford County between the Brooke and Leeland Road stations. Infrastructure work will include modifications to Dahlgren Junction interlocking, reconstruction of the roadway bridge at Leeland Road, and a new rail bridge over Harrell Road at Claiborne Run. The additional capacity provided by this new siding will increase the efficiency of passenger and freight trains throughout the rail network and in the area of Leeland Road station.

Siding A will increase network fluidity and reduce delays due to passenger and freight train congestion.
