ASHLAND, Va. (AP) — A series of public meetings on the controversial Ashland section of a federal high-speed rail project is kicking off.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports the Hanover County and Ashland-area committee for the DC2RVA project will meet Monday. It will be the first of six monthly public meetings intended to help come up with a preference on how the Ashland section of the project might look.
DC2RVA would connect Richmond and Washington as one segment of a larger southeast rail project. Three options for the Ashland area route are being considered, and some have drawn vocal concerns from area residents.
Representatives from Ashland, Hanover, Randolph-Macon College, CSX Transportation and the Richmond Regional Transportation Planning Organization are on the committee.
