VERY IMPORTANT! This Wednesday night 10/11 @ 6:00pm at Patrick Henry High School, DRPT is hosting a combined open house and formal public input hearing on the DC2RVA rail project. Each speaker will have 3 minutes.

Please plan to join the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for public hearings to learn about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that is now available for review and comment. The Draft EIS details recommended improvements to increase reliability and provide capacity to add nine daily passenger rail round trips between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, VA.

DRPT will host a combined open house and formal public hearing at each of the following locations (Richmond, Ashland, Alexandria, Fredericksburg, Quantico). The public will have an opportunity to discuss the project with team members before providing comments for the official record either in writing or during the formal portion of the public hearing. If you are unable to attend a hearing, the Draft EIS and the narrated online presentation along with other materials are available on the project website.
