Long Bridge Study Update - Meeting June 6th

This is a potential bridge that would reach across the Potomac from Virginia to DC at the 14th St bridge crossing and could include a bicycle bridge.
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 for status updates and information on the June 6th public meeting.

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.
