DDOT and the FRA are hosting a meeting this evening on the Long Bridge Study.
Long Bridge is a two-track railroad connecting the District and Virginia. The bridge is utilized by freight, passenger and commuter rail service. DDOT received an American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) Grant from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to study the Long Bridge. The purpose of the study is to: analyze multi-modal connectivity and operational improvements; assess the long-term multi-modal capacity improvement that includes the future operating requirements of high-speed and intercity passenger rail, commuter rail, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, vehicular and freight rail services over the Potomac River; and determine the structural integrity of the bridge and make short-term and long-term improvement recommendations.
