CSX plans track work in Ashland, Va.; Delays to Amtrak service expected

(Source: CSX press release, February 20, 2013)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — CSX Transportation (CSXT) today announced that it will be performing track maintenance on its line through Ashland, Virginia, starting February 24 as part of its ongoing commitment to ensuring its rail network provides the safest, most efficient rail service possible.

The work in Ashland will be done during the day, limiting continuing operation of Amtrak and freight trains to an adjacent track. As a result, all trains, including Amtrak’s service between Washington, DC, and Virginia stations and points south are likely to experience delays.

Beginning February 24, CSX crews will replace both rails on one of its tracks in Ashland. The work will cover about 1.8 miles of track, and involve the replacement of 18,718 feet of rail. This work will be performed between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday through Thursday for two weeks, ending March 7.

Subsequent work to replace about 38,000 crossties on the line between Greendale and Ashland will begin March 17 and end on March 28. This work will also be performed between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Sunday through Thursday.

CSX is working with Amtrak and the Commonwealth of Virginia so they can provide up-to-date information on the status of trains affected by the delays.

CSX apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the track work, which is necessary for the safety and efficiency of ongoing passenger and freight rail service.
