About

DCSafeRail.org, a grassroots organization, serves to educate the public—especially Washington DC residents, organizations, businesses, and commuters—about the railroad freight issues that the Washington DC metro area faces. This website focuses on ongoing activities for freight rail that moves through the Nation’s Capitol, specifically the Virginia Avenue Tunnel project.

This website will provide updates about ongoing projects from the perspective of DC residents. Its goal will be to inform and highlight the safety, health, and security issues associated with DC freight rail.
