VA: an update on the Amazon HQ2 project
Author: Lackawanna484

The Washington Post has an article about the transportation enhancements around the "National Landing" district, the new name for the area which used to be Pentagon - Crystal City - Potomac Yards. Projects underway will add Amtrak, VRE, bus, bicycle, and pedestrian expansions.  Even a walkway to Reagan National Airport, believed to be a first in the US for a major airport.   The organizers and business community want a one seat ride which involves MARC.  The desire to have VRE trains continue into Maryland, and MARC trains continue into Virginia has been discussed for decades.

Paywall possible
