Through the DC2RVA alternatives development process and related community meetings, DRPT recognized the unique nature of the Town of Ashland and Hanover County, and that many of the alternatives for greater rail capacity in this area generated community concerns. As a result, DRPT recommended to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) a community-based effort to supplement DC2RVA public involvement activities and help inform DRPT’s recommendation for a preferred alternative that provides the required rail capacity through the Ashland/Hanover area. As part of the community-based effort, DRPT proposes to establish a community advisory committee (CAC) that will take a more intensive look at all previous options. The CAC could also identify potential new options to meet the purpose and need of the DC2RVA project while minimizing or avoiding any potential impacts of those options.
