Vet- McDonnell announced that the Commonwealth of Virginia, Norfolk Southern, Amtrak and the City of Roanoke have joined together to start work to extend Amtrak Virginia regional inter- city passenger rail service from Lynchburg to Roanoke. It has been 34 years since intercity passenger rail has served the City of Roanoke. The return of passenger rail to Roanoke is a result of the passage this past session of the General Assembly of Virginia's first major trans- portation funding plan in nearly three decades. The governor was joined at the announcement by local elected officials including Roanoke Mayor David Bowers, state leaders including Thelma Drake, Director of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, and rail officials including Charles W. Moorman, CEO of Norfolk Southern and Joe McHugh from Amtrak. "For many years, the citizens of Roanoke and the Valley have asked when intercity passenger rail will return," said Governor McDonnell. "I am pleased to announce that the Department of Rail and Public Transportation, through its partnership with Norfolk Southern, Amtrak and the City of Roanoke, will begin Work on bringing service back to this historical railroad city. This achievement is a direct result of the bipartisan effort this past winter to pass Virginia's first major transportation funding plan in over a generation. We had gone far too long without investing the necessary resour- ces in our roads and railways. This infrastructure is crucial to future job creation and economic ting a lot of ribbons. We're building new roads and railways all around the Commonwealth. All of this will lead to new jobs for our citizens, and a more prosperous Virginia. And right here in Roanoke, it means the return of intercity passenger rail service to the Star City." "The signing into law of the Governor's transportation bill provided a dedicated funding source for intercity passenger rail, which can be used for capi- tal and the extension of service," said Transportation Secretary Sean T. Connaughton. "The ad- ministration placed a high prior- "ity on extending Amtrak Virginia to Roanoke as a viable transport- ation option for travel to cities along the Northeast Corridor." Work to bring Amtrak Virginia service to the city, as an extension of the highly-suc- cessful Lynchburg line, is anticipated to take between three and four years. Thelma Drake, director of the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), said, "Conceptual design work and rail capacity analysis is already underway. Work will be done by Norfolk Southern, Am- trak and the City of Roanoke." "Norfolk Southern is happy to play a role in a new chapter of the Star City's rail history as we support the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Tram- portation's efforts to extend passenger service to Roanoke," said Norfolk Southern CEO Wick Moorman. "While freight is at the core of Norfolk South- ern's business, we understand the importance of passenger service to the Roanoke Valley." otel:i areas of the Common- wealth as well as cities along the Nor0aeast Corridor," said Amttak President and CEO Je Roi'dman. "We offer travelers a safe? efficient and reliable alternative that mitigates the effe,]', of high gas prices and perv@ive highway and airlinb congestion." "The entire Roanoke region is..6,xited about having pas- setlgi" rail servilce back in the Sty" City for the first time since 1979 Roanoke, the home of the Norfolk & Western for many de- . cades, is once again a 'railroad town.' Bringing passenger rail serV!ce to Roanoke has been ROan)ke's most important eco- nonIje development priority," said-Roanoke Mayor David A. Bo,ers. "I thank Governor McD/Jnnell and his Admini- stration, particularly DRPT Director Thelma Drake and her team, for their leadership and successful efforts to bring pas- senger rail service back to Roanoke. I also want' to thank AMTRAK and Norfolk South- ern for partnering with us. This is a tremendous accomplishment t for the Commonwealth, th Roanoke Valley region and our- City and, again, I sincerely thank: the Governor for his leadership." Kaown as the "Amtrak Virginia" partnership, Roanoke is the latest step for the Com- monwealth to lead the way as; one of the few Uates in the: country to successfu!ly negotiate the addition of new intercityl , passenger rail servige in r0ajor: rail corridors, balancing freight and economic development needs with additional intercityl passenger rail options. : plaint, orally or in writing, to the employer or the government, or against any individuals who assist or practice in the investigation of any complaint, or otherwise oppose discrimination. 8-15-1tcgL RUSSELL COUNTY Public Schools.
