C100 Testimony DC Council Transportation Oversight

Monte Edwards

Testimony before the DC Council Committee on Transportation and the Environment, Performance Oversight Hearing concerning the District’s Department of Transportation.  While considerable emphasis on the plan to redevelop Union Station has focused on parking, not much attention has been paid so far to consider needed rail track upgrades to improve passenger and freight rail operations through and beyond Union Station, neglecting this aspect of planning for what is, let us not forget, a rail station.
