The Virginia Passenger Rail Authority will be holding an online public meeting to talk about the Long Bridge Project on Wednesday, June 22, at 7:00 P.M.
The Long Bridge Project will construct a new, two-track railroad bridge next to the existing Long Bridge, creating a four-track corridor. A new bike-pedestrian bridge also will be constructed as part of the mitigation to National Park Service (NPS) parkland and will span the Potomac River and George Washington Memorial Parkway, connecting Long Bridge Park directly to East and West Potomac Parks.
Can’t make the meeting? The VPRA will also be holding two all-day pop-ups at the Wharf in DC on Wednesday, June 15, and at the Long Bridge Aquatics and Fitness Center on Saturday, June 18.
