New Metro Station?

WTOP’s Adam Tuss is reporting that MoCo councilman Roger Berliner (District 1) is proposing an in-fill Metro station on the Red Line, preferably between Grosvenor and White Flint. His reasoning? The upcoming renovations and new construction in White Flint that is expected to transform the area into “a new urbanism model.”

Berliner believes the growth of the area, as well as the BRAC expansion at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, warrants a long-term investment look at putting in a new Red Line station.

Metro leaders are skeptical of the plan. What do you think? Is this a councilman’s pipe dream or a legitimate future expansion of our most heavily-traveled line?

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

  1. I lived up at Shady Grove for over a year when I first moved to DC… I never really saw any real reason for something else up there in that area, it seemed pretty well covered to me. Remember that with Rockville Pike right there, there’s a lot of bus lines going through there.

    Waste of time and money, I’d have to say.
