Topic: Washington D.C. to Richmond Southeast High Speed Rail Project (DC2RVA)

DC2RVA RIC Branch ASCE Presentation 12 Jan 2016

Meet the Presenters:

Mike Knott


Mike has over 38 years’ national and international experience in the design of large complex multi-modal transportation projects and is serving as the Engineering Manager for the HDR Consultant Team on the DC2RVA Project.




Jake has over 20 years’ experience in transportation engineering, including serving as the Deputy Manager for the Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor Projects prior to his recent promotion at DRPT.



The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) are working to improve passenger rail service between Washington, D.C. and Richmond in a CSXT corridor shared by growing volumes of passenger, commuter, and freight rail traffic. As part of the process, a Tier II EIS, preliminary engineering, and a service development plan is underway that will specify improvements for the 123-mile DC2RVA project corridor. The DRPT consultant team is led by HDR with support from Parsons Transportation Group, Moffatt & Nichol and other specialty subconsultants. The presentation will include an overview of the ongoing project and a discussion of rail issues specific to the Richmond Area, including the historic development of rail in the region and the resulting constraints, as well as rail station alternatives being evaluated. Participation in the DC2RVA project by the public is encouraged. Additional information can be found on the web at www.DC2RVArail.com.
