Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will hold a community meeting to discuss reports of vibration issues resulting from CSX trains traveling through the Virginia Avenue Tunnel on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., at a location to be determined.  Norton has worked closely with the neighbors and CSX, holding several community meetings since the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project began to ensure oversight and transparency.

“Residents have raised concerns about possible vibrations in their homes caused by CSX trains traveling through the Virginia Avenue tunnel, and it is critical they have the opportunity to directly engage with CSX and public officials,” Norton said.  “There may be limits to what can be done about vibrations from trains traveling in interstate commerce, but I look forward to our community meeting where all can come together to form solutions and receive a much-needed update on the state of play on CSX train travel through our neighborhoods.”
