- Metrorail Station Construction Update 2/17/21
This past weekend, the builders intended to install the pedestrian bridge from Potomac Yard to the Metrorail station and install duct banks under the WMATA tracks to connect the AC switchgear building to the station. Work on the pedestrian bridge was postponed due to weather; however, the duct banks were installed. Residents at the north end of Potomac Greens may have noticed there is now a ‘clacking’ sound as WMATA trains pass through the section where the duct banks were installed. Due to low temperatures, the reinstalled tracks were bolted together instead of being welded together. This will be corrected ...
- Metrorail Station Construction Update – Weekend Work – 2/12/2021
We were told in earlier PYMIG meetings that the builders planned to install the Metrorail Station’s pedestrian bridge from the knuckle to the mezzanine (crossing over the CSX and WMATA tracks) over President’s Day weekend. Due to possible inclement weather, the builders were uncertain if the work could be accomplished. We have just received a letter from WMATA informing us that the work will occur this weekend. The work will begin at midnight tonight and continue around the clock for the rest of the weekend. A copy of the letter follows:
- Paint Disposal
Many of you may have noticed garbage trucks spilling paint in our alleys. This is caused by improper disposal of unwanted cans of paint. The City provides procedures to properly dispose of unwanted cans of oil-based and latex-based paint.
The City considers oil-based paint to be hazardous waste. Residents should take all oil-based paint to the hazardous waste collection facility at 3224 Colvin Street. You can deliver oil-based paint to the collection facility as a liquid in the original can. The facility is open Monday and Saturday (7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). You can find a complete list of acceptable/unacceptable hazardous materials

- Jan. 2021 PYMIG Meeting Notes (video update) – 2021-02-04
The PYMIG posted a video update of Metrorail Station construction on February 2, 2020. The video’s purpose was for the builders (Potomac Yard Constructors or PYC) to discuss the Metrorail Station’s progress and address the future construction schedule. The video is available here. I encourage residents to view the 12:34 minute video. The drawing below will help residents locate the various elements of the Metrorail station.
1. Mezzanine/Headhouses. The concrete pours for the mezzanine are almost complete. There will be some additional concrete pours for the headhouse platforms. Due to cold temperatures, the builders wrapped the lower portion of the ...
- PG Parking Permit Survey – 02/02/2021
As the Potomac Yard Metro project continues, the Board is considering applying through the City to designate Potomac Greens as a residential parking permit district. This would allow PG residents to purchase permits and park without issue on our neighborhood streets (which are City-owned). More importantly, it would also deter non-residents from parking in PG merely to use the new Metro station.
Please take a look at the following details (below) and then complete this 1-question survey–here–about your interest in the creation of a special parking district.
