    LONG BRIDGE STUDY

    May 2013

    The Long Bridge Study Update

    Based on the purpose and need of the project and the feedback received from agencies and the public, the Long Bridge Study has developed a number of concept alternatives. These alternatives will be shared with the public at the next public meeting.

    The next public meeting is scheduled for June 6th, 2013 at the Westminster Presbyterian Church located in 400 I (Eye) Street, SW Washington D.C. 20024 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

    The project team will present the alternatives in the meeting to receive feedback from the public. Please check the project website www.longbridgeproject.com for status updates and information on the June 6th public meeting.

    If you have comments or questions, please send them to info@longbridgeproject.com.

    Long Bridge is a two-track railroad connecting the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia. The bridge is owned by CSX Transportation, Inc. and is utilized by freight, passenger, and commuter rail service. The District Department of Transportation (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 include 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.

    I'd be happy to set one up if someone from the DCBAC contacted me saying they wanted it, and then made the effort to update it.

    As it is, they have one of the best BAC blogs in the region: http://dcbac.blogspot.com/ They also have a great social media component that Arlington's BAC should aspire to...

    I agree with this, and have volunteered to do it. ARLBAC this would be a good step up!

    Make it happen!!

    I'd recommend just going ahead and getting accounts set up and then presenting them to the Google Group and then posting about it in the ArlBAC category of the forum.

    There's an ABAC meeting June 3rd. If you could get the set up and a presentation ready before then, we could probably get it approved. I'm happy to present if I'm at the meeting, but I have another meeting that would trump BAC that might be happening that night.
