CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) has requested the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to consider permits allowing CSXT the temporary usage of air rights in the vicinity of the Interstate 695/11th Street Bridges and for the potential temporary closure of the Southeast Freeway/I-695 ramp on 8th Street, SE. These actions would facilitate construction associated with the Virginia Avenue Tunnel. This request requires oversight and approval by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). DDOT and FHWA are developing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to assess the impacts of the proposed CSXT Virginia Avenue Tunnel project to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Effects to the historic resources from this project will also be assessed in compliance with the Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
This public meeting will include a brief presentation and introductory remarks, “breakout” workshop sessions with the study team, and a concluding question and answer session. The introductory presentation will start very shortly after 6 pm. Both verbal and written comments will be taken at the meeting. Comment forms will be available at the public meeting and can be submitted on-site, via provided self-addressed/postage paid envelopes, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
