RD873 - 2021 Bristol Extension Capital and Operating Cost Analysis

Executive Summary:

The Virginia General Assembly, during the 2021 Session, passed Item 447.10 E. which tasked the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) to “…provide an assessment of both the total project costs and incremental costs resulting from (i) the extension of intercity passenger rail to Bristol, Virginia; … to the Chairs of the House Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Finance and Appropriations no later than November 15, 2021." DRPT developed the 2021 Bristol Extension Capital & Operating Cost Analysis report (the 2021 Bristol Cost Analysis) to fulfill this requirement.
