Virginia Avenue Tunnel Record of Decision

The Federal Highway Administration has issued a Record of Decision (ROD) for the proposed reconstruction of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel.  After a thorough review process, an environmentally preferred alternative was identified.  The environmentally preferred alternative is the Selected Alternative approved in the ROD.  The approval of the Selected Alternative (Alternative 3) is based upon its ability to minimize, to the extent practicable, the environmental effects and consequences resulting from the Virginia Avenue Tunnel Reconstruction Project, meet the purpose and need of the project, and was responsive to public and agency input.  Implementation of the Selected Alternative will involve replacing the existing Virginia Avenue Tunnel with two new permanent tunnels constructed sequentially.
