(Updated 1/12/22) Slowly — maybe too slowly — the Potomac Yard Metro station is coming together. An update at a meeting last Tuesday showcased the latest in the station’s construction and offered a look at what’s ahead in the spring.
One of the biggest updates is that the rail in the middle of the station is nearly complete.
“Our track subcontractor aligning and placing rail to correct location,” said project manager Jeff Wood. “Once that work is completed, we will come back through and start pouring the concrete plinths underneath it. At that point, the rail will be done in the middle of the station. Our electrical subcontractor will have work to do on tightening signals, but the track itself will be complete.”
Wood said the next steps are pouring concrete plinths underneath the rails and having an electrician tighten signals, but once that’s done the track itself will be complete.
Now, the construction workers are putting together the escalator, roof, and pedestrian bridges.
A schedule shared at the meeting indicates that the AC Switchgear building and the foundation work for the southwest entrance are scheduled to be finished this month and in January. Other infrastructure work is scheduled to continue through the spring.
“Each month, you’ll see more and more external work occur,” Wood said, “and the station will become more like what people envisioned on day one.”
The next meeting of the group is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 24.
The Potomac Yard Metro station — originally scheduled to open in April — is now scheduled to open next fall.
