Proposed Reconstruction of the Bladensburg Bus Garage
As one of Metro’s oldest bus garages, the Bladensburg Bus Garage located in northeast Washington DC, has served as a bus operations and maintenance facility for nearly 60 years. Metro is proposing to rebuild and modernize this crucial facility, including increasing the size of the site approximately one acre in order to incorporate a state-of-the-art garage that can hold up to 300 buses, separate entrances for buses and employee vehicles, and on-site employee parking.
Public feedback will be provided to the WMATA Board of Directors for approval in late 2019. If approved, property acquisition along 28th St NE, a closure of a cul-de-sac on Douglas St NE, and a nearby temporary bus and employee parking lot would be necessary for the construction of this facility.
