ASHLAND, Va. (AP) - The Hanover County Board of Supervisors has revised its position on part of a high-speed rail project that would link Richmond and Washington.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1SBVNvf ) reports that the board on Wednesday passed a resolution that revoked its previous endorsement to build a bypass west of Ashland for passenger trains that do not stop in town.

The resolution stated that the board wanted to partner with citizens to identify a better alternative.

Three possibilities had been recommended for the rail project. The first was a no-build option, the second was the bypass option and the third was to add a third track alongside two that already cut through downtown.

The board did not formally adopt a position supporting any of the proposed alternatives.
