Funds Released for third track between Arkendale and Powells Creek

The Federal Railroad Administration is set to release $74.8 million in order for work to commence on a planned third track between Arkendale and Powell’s Creek.

Yearlong battle over

After a yearlong battle, the go-ahead has been given on the track which will reduce passenger time by four minutes, as well as increase on-time performance by 2%.

Future plans

Eventually, the track will become part of a high-speed line as well as relieving pressure from Amtrak, freight trains and Virginia Railway Express.

The work, which needs to be completed by September 2017, doesn’t yet have a start date.
