CSX Transportation wants to greatly expand its freight rail through Washington DC to increase its bottom line profits. Double-stacked trains will be rolling through the city soon—through an open trench at street level between Capitol Hill and the Navy Yard. Serious safety, health, and security concerns are adding up after more than four years of misleading information and lack of transparency.
Organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency, Sierra Club, the Committee of 100 on the Federal City, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society, and DC Water and Sewer Authority are raising their voices over the negative impacts of CSX's Virginia Avenue Tunnel project. Residents are calling for at least a rerouting of trains during construction to greatly reduce the impacts of this proposed project. But as of yet CSX—a multi-billion dollar corporation—is not listening.
