The Washington, D.C. to Richmond Southeast High Speed Rail (DC2RVA) Project is a joint project between the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) to improve intercity passenger rail service in the north-south corridor between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, VA. 
 
The purpose of the DC2RVA Project is to increase capacity to deliver higher speed passenger rail, expand commuter rail, and accommodate growth of freight rail service in an efficient and reliable multimodal rail corridor. The DC2RVA Project will enable passenger rail to be a competitive transportation choice for intercity travelers between Washington, D.C., Richmond, and beyond. It extends 123 miles along an existing rail corridor owned by CSX Transportation (CSXT) from the Long Bridge across the Potomac River in Arlington, VA, to Centralia, VA in Chesterfield County, south of Richmond.  
 
Last month, FRA and DPRT published a Tier II Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which can be found here.  The Draft EIS provides an overview and comparison of the alternatives under consideration, including recommendations for a preferred alternative in
each corridor segment.
