    The Long Bridge Final Environmental Impact Statement was released a couple of weeks ago. Not many changes from the Draft EIS. The preferred alternative is a new rail bridge north of the existing bridge and a 14' wide bike/ped bridge north of that. Governor Northam announced Virginia was funding a huge chunk of it with Amtrak and VRE kicking in some funding, but that was last December prior to COVID and it's impact on budgets. The bike/ped bridge is a mitigation for impacts on NPS land. More words and a couple of pictures at:

    Also, a big thank you to everyone who attended meetings and wrote letters along the way to push for the bike/ped bridge and putting it in the mind of NPS as mitigation.
