Provide feedback on concept alternatives for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station and Potomac Greens Park
As part of the design process for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station, the November 16, 2015 Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG) meeting included discussion of different forms of station enclosures as well as concept alternatives for Potomac Greens Park.
What do you think?
Provide your input by taking the survey. Comments received by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, November 29, will inform the development of the design concept, which will be presented to PYMIG and the community.
Overview: The City of Alexandria is moving forward with design and construction of the proposed Metrorail station at Potomac Yard. The station will be located along the Yellow and Blue Lines between the Braddock Road and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport stations, and will be the second infill station in the Metrorail system.
Over the next several months, WMATA and the City will be developing the design-build documents for the Metrorail station. These documents are the set of standards, requirements, and expectations that the contractors will use to develop their bids. The conceptual design for the station will be an important part of those documents. The design process will include a series of meetings to solicit public input, as well as regular updates to the Planning Commission, the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Board of Architectural Review, and City Council. The public process will be supported by a design team consisting of consultants and staff from the City, WMATA, and the National Park Service. The goal is development of a conceptual design that has buy-in from residents, can be recommended for approval by relevant boards and commissions, and can be approved by City Council, the National Park Service, WMATA, and other approving agencies.
