“The Virginia Statewide Rail Plan provides a vision that will help guide the Commonwealth towards meeting its transportation goal of moving people and goods efficiently and effectively,” said Thelma Drake, director of the Department of Rail and Public Transportation.

According to Governor McDonnell, “The comprehensive plan will provide a defined vision for passenger and freight rail transportation in Virginia through 2040. It profiles the Commonwealth’s current rail assets, services, and capacity chokepoints. Recommended improvement projects are included as part of the Rail Resource Allocation Plan, a tool that establishes funding sources, funding needs, and phasing for rail projects. Projects were identified using public and stakeholder input, and extensive evaluation of future population and employment trends, land use, and travel demand.”
