The City Council approved the second entrance for the Potomac Yard Metro station back in April, but now the design of the proposed bridge is headed back through the city process for final approval.
The proposal is something of a compromise attempted to alleviate anger from southern residents who remain outraged that original plans for a full second entrance were cut behind closed doors while residents were told it was still planned.
The design approved by the City Council is not the full southern access initially promised, but is instead a bridge over wetlands that residents to the south can take up to the north entrance rather than walking around the sizable pond.
The City Council wound up choosing a bridge to a stairwell and elevator rather than a long ramp. The design places the southern entrance at the east side of the Potomac Avenue and E. Glebe Road.
The proposal is scheduled to the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) on Wednesday, Sept. 2.
