Abstract : The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission (BRAC), known as BRAC 2005, became law in Nov. 9, 2005. It required relocating various Department of Defense (DoD) and related agencies from leased spaces throughout the National Capital Region (NCR) to Fort Belvoir, Virginia. It was scheduled to be completed by Sept. 15, 2011. Due to the large number of BRAC movements to Fort Belvoir Engineering Proving Ground (EPG) and the lack of sufficient infrastructure to support the movement, the Army and Commonwealth of Virginia agreed to limit the number of units that would move to the EPG. This resulted in BRAC 133 Project Fort Belvoir Mark Center, Virginia, requiring the relocation of 6,409 employees to the Mark Center. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) completed an environmental assessment (EA), studying locations outside of Fort Belvoir for the BRAC 133 operations in July 2008. This EA resulted in a Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI), and the Mark Center, located adjacent to Interstate 395 (I-395) and bounded by Seminary Road and North Beauregard Street, was selected as the site. The BRAC 133 FONSI required a transportation management plan which was developed in July 2010, by USACE in association with the Washington Headquarters Services (WHS). The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) reviewed and granted a conditional approval of the Transportation Management Plan Sept. 2, 2010. The U.S. Department of the Army submitted its report, Transportation Plan for BRAC Recommendation #133 Project Fort Belvoir-Mark Center, Virginia, pursuant to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (Public Law 111-383) to the Congress May 9, 2011.
