Rolling Road Station Platform Improvements
STV, as part of a larger task order contract with Virginia Railway Express (VRE), performed construction management services for platform improvements at Rolling Road Station, which is along the Manassas Line connecting Washington, D.C., to Bristow, VA.
Prior to construction, Rolling Road Station’s platform was 380-feet-long and could only accommodate five-car sets for boarding and detraining. As a result, passengers on VRE’s standard eight-car sets needed to move to different cars to detrain at the station, adding commuting time and inconvenience. The successful erection of a 290-foot extension of the platform allows the station to accommodate eight-car trains, making travel more efficient and seamless.
