Building the New Bladensburg
The Bladensburg Bus Garage, located in northeast DC, is a facility rich with history and strong ties to its neighboring communities. Metro plans to modernize and update the facility to increase environmental safety features, accommodate an expanded bus fleet, support Metro’s zero-emission bus plan and compliment the communities evolving landscape.
The project will be completed in phases to allow the facility to remain operational throughout construction of the new Bladensburg Bus Garage. The state-of-the-art facility will be able to hold up to 300 buses, have separate entrances for buses and employee vehicles, provide on-site employee parking, and make use of environmentally friendly technologies.
WSP USA has been selected to provide project management and construction management services with contractor Hensel Phelps conducting construction services. The following timeline details Metro's process for design, review and approval, and construction surrounding the Bladensburg Bus Garage Replacement Project. Dates for the start of demolition and construction activities will be established upon conclusion of the design phase. All dates reflect the latest project status and will be updated as needed.
