CSX Virginia Avenue Tunnel Reconstruction Project

Supplemental Community Mitigation Fund


As part of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel Reconstruction Project, CSX awarded a $650,000 Supplemental Community Mitigation Fund to enhance the community & offset temporary inconvenience resulting from the project.  A Committee selected & managed by NSCP will help decide how the fund is allocated and CCP (the Third Party Administrator awarded the funds) will disperse it in 6 phases during project.


CCP was proud to be selected  in accordance

with the Federal Highway Administration's  November 2014 Record of Decision

and awarded the $650,000 fund.


We recognize that there is great interest in the community about how this Fund will be administered and distributed.

As an organization in the impacted area, we view this as a great way to work together to help create a vibrant riverfront community.
