New METRO Stations and Loops by 2040?

December 19, 2013

Metro’s planners have begun suggesting that the region add 10 new stations and create four “super stations” by adding capacity and connections around the two Farragut Square stations, Union Station, the Capitol South station and the Pentagon station. The 10 new stations have not been named. But going clockwise from Rosslyn, they look something like Rosslyn II, Georgetown University, Georgetown, West End, Thomas Circle, Mount Vernon Triangle, Capitol Hill North, Navy Yard II, Waterfront II and Potomac Park. The actual locations have not been decided, but the idea is to have them built by 2040. (The plan does not include a proposed station at Potomac Yard because the push for that station is coming from the City of Alexandria.) The $26 billion figure probably will change as the planning staff refines plans and costs. (Post)
