CSX is pleased to announce that Near Southeast Community Partners (NSC-Partners) has been selected as the Third Party Administrator for the Supplemental Community Mitigation Fund. CSX is providing a $650,000 Supplemental Community Mitigation Fund to offset temporary inconveniences resulting from the project and to support neighborhood enhancements. Members of the local community will help decide how the Community Fund is allocated and a Third Party Administrator will disperse the funds in phases during project construction. http://bit.ly/1yHmx3R

CSX soon will deploy air-, noise- and vibration-monitoring equipment on public space in several locations along Virginia Avenue SE to gather baseline data for environmental monitoring purposes, consistent with the construction mitigation plans described in the FHWA Record of Decision on the Virginia Avenue Tunnel. Sensors will be deployed for up to two weeks. This activity could begin as soon as February 9.
CSX and the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project team will soon begin performing field activities along the Virginia Avenue corridor, including surveying, recordation of existing conditions, site preparation activities and the installation of project field offices within CSX properties at the east and west ends of the project. February will also see the beginning of material deliveries to the project storage areas in preparation for additional upcoming work in late winter/early spring. These activities are not expected to cause any disruption to the public. Early preparation activities such as utility relocations could begin on public space as early as mid-February. As part of our commitment to the community, we will make announcements about the types and locations of activity in advance of any work taking place.
CSX is hosting an informational open house on Thursday, February 5, at the Courtyard by Marriott in SE DC. Click the link to learn more. http://bit.ly/1yNatB7
