Balloon Testing Information - As part of the Potomac Yard Metrorail analysis, balloon tests were performed to further understand the visual impacts of the proposed Potomac Yard Metrorail Station locations. Specialized balloons were used to take photographs and video images of each of the alternative station locations. Balloons were visible above the George Washington Memorial Parkway while the tests were conducted. Stopping along the Parkway is prohibited. If there are any questions about this test or the project, contact Susan Gygi, Potomac Yard Projects Manager at 703.746.4109 or email@example.com.
