A note about the fourth issue TARP will discuss: Virginia is currently studying Amtrak service to the Tri-Cities via a station in Bristol. The economic impact study, the second of three studies on this proposed service is planned to wrap up in late August, with the third (cost analysis) study to start shortly thereafter. The hope is to have Bristol service in place by 2022.
