Brooke and Leeland Station Expansion Study, Design, and Construction
Virginia Railway Express is expanding the size of five stations on their Fredericksburg Line as a part of their "Penta-Platform" project. Included in this work are Brooke and Leeland Road Stations, which DRPT is funding in part through the Rail Enhancement Fund. The project will expand the length of the platforms and add a second platform edge to allow VRE trains to serve the stations on either track. Currently, there is only one platform at these stations, so trains must cross over to the adjacent track to make a station stop. This constrains capacity for Amtrak and CSX freight trains on the line.
