CSX railroad has proposed to expand the amount of trains its sends through Washington, DC. The proposal includes double stacked freight trains and would require raising roofs on bridges and lowering some railroad tracks across the mid-Atlantic. The cost of the project is estimated to be in excess of $842 million. The governors of Maryland, Virginia and several other states have backed the plan and it is supported by the Washington, DC District Department of transportation. Ideally, the plan could mean fewer trucks on highways. One benefit of the proposal could be increased passenger service by rail. Unfortunately, this plan will also result in short-term congestion on highways. Ultimately, this could result in more automobile accidents, car wrecks and other problems. Railroad employees will also be at risk during the construction phase.
