The intersection of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown
What would the Metro system look like with a couple stops in Georgetown?
As Metro plans out the next few decades, they are considering the possibility of running a Blue Line through H Street, NoMa and Georgetown, a plan that has the support of at least a few neighborhood groups, reported Georgetown Metropolitan on Tuesday.
The Georgetown BID has issued a statement of support for the new line, and other community associations are signing on as well. Next week, ANC 2E will also consider signing on in support of the new line.
From Georgetown Metropolitan.
Right now, the Blue Line follows the same path as the Orange Line in most of DC proper. As revealed in the image above, the adjusted Blue Line will be bumped to the north of the Orange Line, with two stops in Georgetown — one at Georgetown University — as well as stops at Thomas Circle, the Convention Center, NoMa and two on the H Street Corridor, among others. Of course, the timeline for the completion of these new stops would be decades from now.
As we reported last summer, the Georgetown BID is in the midst of a grand visioning exercise for the neighborhood that includes dreams of a gondola, a giant swimming pool in the aqueduct, and one or two Metro stations.
