Welcome to the Long Bridge Phase II Study
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT), in coordination with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), is completing a comprehensive study for the rehabilitation or replacement of the Long Bridge over the Potomac River. The existing two-track railroad bridge, owned by CSX Transportation (CSXT), serves freight (CSXT), intercity passenger (Amtrak) and commuter rail (Virginia Railway Express [VRE]). The 3.2 mile study area begins in Arlington, Virginia and extends northeast, along the existing rail alignment in the District of Columbia, east of L’Enfant.
Long Bridge provides the only railroad crossing between the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
