A public information meeting to introduce a preliminary engineering and environmental review of options for higher speed passenger rail service between Washington, D.C., and Richmond is set for Nov. 12 at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

The open house will be from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and a formal presentation will begin at 6 p.m.
The project includes a Tier II Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the 123-mile rail corridor that goes through all cities and counties along the I-95 corridor between Arlington County (the south bank of the Potomac River) and Chesterfield County (Centralia).

The meetings are hosted by The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), in cooperation with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).
