VAT Reaches One-Year Construction Anniversary

May 2016 represents the one-year construction anniversary of the VAT project. CSX is proud of the progress we’ve made and we will continue to work hard to ensure the safety of the construction activity and rail operations through the site, to limit disturbances and to leave this great neighborhood even better than it is today. We look forward to continuing to work together with community members and our project partners as we build a better, safer Virginia Avenue Tunnel. Watch the video below to learn more about the progress we’ve made during our first year of construction.
