Funds Released for third track between Arkendale and Powells 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%.

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