Design Update Project Info Meeting: Crystal City Metro East Entrance
September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Next date: Tuesday, September 06, 2022 | 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM
On September 6, 2022, County transportation staff and representatives from the project’s design team will share the 30% plan for the updated design, which features an at-grade (ground-level) ticketing mezzanine. They will also answer questions and solicit input on some of the design details to be used in the new approach.
In March 2022, the County Board approved an Amendment to the Interim Agreement with JBG SMITH, the private partner on this Public Private Partnership, to advance an alternative design for the new station entrance that features an at-grade (ground-level) ticketing mezzanine. The previously-designed underground mezzanine significantly exceeded the County’s project budget, and this alternative offers cost savings over the current design by significantly reducing the amount of excavation required, reducing the number of elevators from five to three, and removing the need to penetrate the station’s existing vault wall.
The new at-grade alternative achieves the goals of adding capacity to meet future growth, creating a multimodal transportation hub, and improving access and accessibility to the Crystal City Metrorail Station from Crystal Drive. The at-grade alternative will locate the main station components (such as faregates) at the surface with the primary access from Crystal Drive. The County has coordinated these proposed changes with WMATA.
