New! Media Coverage of Council Hearing

Click on the links below to view video coverage of the Council hearing, in which dozens of community members united to testify against the CSX plan and demand Council oversight, as well as investigations into suspicious activity, such as allegations of a $4 million payment from CSX to DDOT, that, it appears, was returned to CSX and then handed back to DDOT, apparently to pay for a small redesign of the just-finished 11th St Bridge.

Citizens were asking that no decision be made on the EIS until all these and other questions are fully evaluated in the DC Council’s comprehensive rail study that is just getting under way.
