Potomac Yard Metro scoping meeting
Alexandria officials are taking the first steps in making the Potomac Yard Metro station a reality by holding a scoping meeting for the public in February.
Two Feb. 10 meetings will let residents, business owners and government agencies give public input into the federal environmental assessment, which studies social, environmental and economic impacts of a project in an area. The federal process could take up to three years to complete.
The proposed $270 million station would be between the Reagan National Airport and Braddock Road Metro stations on the Blue and Yellow lines. The federal study would begin with many possible locations before narrowing the options down to a preferred site.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Agency, National Park Service and Federal Transit Authority are working through the first stages of the environmental study with Alexandria, city officials said.
The two meetings Feb. 10 will be held at Cora Kelly Recreation Center, 25 W. Reed Ave. The first will be from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; the second will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Comments will be taken until March 15. For more information, visit www.potomacyardmetro.com.
