Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said that Amtrak passenger service to the Twin City is a “logical step” but not anytime soon.
Speaking with the Bristol Herald Courier editorial board Thursday, Northam outlined his efforts to improve and expand passenger rail service included in the new biennial budget. Northam is proposing a $3.7 billion plan that includes construction of a $1.9 billion rail bridge across the Potomac River to connect Arlington with Washington, D.C.
