Location: CSXT mainline in Newport News with "candidate" site identified at Bland Blvd adjacent to Interstate 64.Project: Design and construction administration contracts related to the Newport News Transportation Center near CSX and Bland Blvd to replace the Amtrak Station and related operations in South Hilton area. The three construction contracts are related projects NNTC-2, NNTC-3 and NNTC-4.Performance/Outcome: This new multi-modal transportation center will be more energy efficient, it will allow for increased passenger train ridership, decreased costs because AMTRAK will be able to turn and maintain the trains on site. CSX will also have more main line track time available for cargo traffic because passenger trains will not need to use the main lines as much. Transportation options will increase through new inter-city bus service with local connections including HRT, shuttles to airport and taxi service.
