Work continues to progress on schedule on the street and open-space restoration at the intersection of 3rd Street and Virginia Avenue. As soon as the week of January 1st, activities will occur to prepare the permanent new entrance to the Capitol Quarter driveway from Virginia Avenue. Activities will include the installation of a temporary chain link fence, removal of portions of the stockade fence, paving, removal of sound blankets, and installation of new granite curbing and sidewalks at the driveway entrance. These activities are all part of the final streetscape restoration. This schedule is contingent on favorable weather conditions. Additional schedule information will be distributed when it is available.
CSX appreciates the community’s patience as we work expeditiously toward completing the project and the streetscape enhancements.
