Metro is seeking your feedback about its proposed construction of a Metrorail Heavy Repair and Overhaul Facility in Landover, Maryland.
Notice of Public Hearing |
Environmental Evaluation | General Plans | Staff Report
This facility would provide additional railcar maintenance capacity to support Metrorail's vehicle fleet and track maintenance functions. It would also accommodate the increase in demand for additional track maintenance and associated equipment.
The project site is bounded by Pennsy Drive, Ardwick-Ardmore Road, Veterans Parkway (MD 410), and the Metrorail Orange Line, in Landover, Maryland. The site consists of several properties with active light industrial uses. The proposed location is approximately 37 acres and would include a connection to the Orange Line between Landover and New Carrollton Metrorail stations. The facility would provide operational and administrative offices, including those that oversee rail operations and monitor and repair the railroad.
Public feedback will be provided to the WMATA Board of Directors in May 2019 for approval. If approved, property acquisition would be necessary for the construction of this facility.
