Potomac Yard Development Schedules Construction Work at Simpson Park

As part of the construction of Potomac Yard Park, Potomac Yard Development LLC (PYD) will rebuild the restroom and storage building at Simpson Park, 426 E Monroe Avenue. PYD’s General Contractor, KT Enterprises, will demolish the existing building in January. The new building will be the same footprint and location as the existing building. At completion, the new facility will provide the public with modern restroom facilities as well as additional functionality for City Maintenance Crews.

During construction, Potomac Yard Development and the Department of Recreation Parks and Cultural Activities will be providing temporary facilities for restrooms to the park users. There will be a construction staging area in the gravel lot immediately north of the existing building. During construction, the dog park and the fields will remain open as scheduled and access will be maintained to the Simpson facilities. As with any construction process there may be temporary interruptions to services and access, however we expect those to be minimal. A brief interruption in service is anticipated for the demolition of the building and more information will be posted as it comes available. Residents will see equipment in use and crews at work during the daytime. For your safety please use extra caution in moving around the site as it will be an active construction zone.
 
For additional information or questions about the work, call Zachary Lette, with LPDA, Inc., Project Liaison at 703.437.7907.
