New Potomac Yard Metrorail Station

Many years of community planning have produced a vision for Potomac Yard, and a new Metrorail station along the Yellow and Blue lines is central to that vision. The City of Alexandria is undertaking an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the station, which evaluates the environmental impacts of several potential station locations and provides information to decision-makers regarding the costs and benefits of each of the alternatives.

      Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group

      The Metrorail Station Feasibility Work Group was established in October 2008 and met over the course of a year and a half through February 2010. In order to ensure there is continuity between the previous initiatives and the implementation of the proposed Metrorail station, the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station Feasibility Work Group was re-convened as The Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG). This group reviews EIS documentation, provides policy guidance to City and WMTA staff, analyzes station concept refinement, and considers funding issues related to the new Metrorail Station. Visit the Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group page to review meeting agenda, presentations, and minutes.


      The Potomac Yard Metrorail Station EIS team wants to hear from you! If you have questions, suggestions, or comments - or if you would like to be added to the project e-mail list - please contact us at:
