C100 Testimony Council Oversight Hearing VAT FEIS

Monte Edwards

C100's testimony describes the Committee of 100’s concerns about the Virginia Avenue Tunnel FEIS and the practical implications of a statement that fails to meet the requirements of District and federal law. Given these deficiencies, C100 strongly recommends that the requisite DDOT and FHWA permits for tunnel expansion not be issued until a supplemental EIS is written, based on a thorough assessment of freight, passenger and commuter rail alternatives under the recently authorized DC Rail Plan.
