A presentation by Beverly Swaim-Staley, President and CEO of the Union Station Redevelopment Corporation (USRC) will discuss progress on the station redevelopment in Washington, DC. USRC is one of the proponents involved in the plans for the Union Station Expansion Project (SEP). USRC is working closely with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and Amtrak to implement long-term development plans for Union Station and the surrounding area.

The SEP, led by consulting architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle, consists of two major work efforts: the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) led by FRA and the conceptual design of the project based upon a final Record of Decision, expected in 2021. The project will include a transportation plan, passenger amenities, and public outreach and involvement. Additionally, with the completion of the EIS, the SEP will fulfill the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the concurrent National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 process.

At this stage of the major development project, FRA is leading the NEPA process, including the associated stakeholder and community outreach and the concurrent NHPA Section 106 process. FRA is currently reviewing the preliminary alternatives that were included in the Concept Screening Report released on July 31, 2017.

In 2020, representatives will continue to engage with the public and community organizations to provide information on the project.
