(This amendment provides $250,000 the first year and $250,000 the second year from the general fund to Lee Hall Depot. The historic Lee Hall Depot was constructed in the 1880's as part of Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad's efforts to establish its Atlantic terminus at Newport News, thereby linking the Ohio River Valley with the sea. The station was sited on Warwick Road, now the Boulevard, connecting the Warwick Courthouse with Williamsburg and Yorktown. The depot is the only remaining station on the lower Virginia Peninsula from the C&O Railroad's expansion into Warwick County. The City of Newport News is preparing to relocate the depot across the tracks and off CSX property.)
