June 2017 Update: The following information was provided to the board by the city in June 2017:
“The City will be performing boundary surveys on two (2) parcels in the proximity of the future station. One parcel is just to the north of the future station location (where the new tracks will go) and one parcel is just to the east of where the future station platform will be situated. The City is coordinating closely with the National Park Service to obtain to appropriate permits for this work.
The site would be accessed by using Potomac Greens Drive, and accessing the site to the north. Support and surveying equipment which will be utilized includes a Global Positioning System (GPS), satellite receiver, survey total station, survey rods with reflectors, tripods for instruments and other associated land surveying tools. These boundary surveys are important so the City can establish land exchange agreements with the National Park Service. The City and NPS are forecasting this work to occur in the near future (potentially late June or early July, pending permit approvals and crew availability). Once started, the actual field survey work itself is forecasted to take about 1-2 weeks (pending weather and/or other elements).
Once I have additional info in regards to the exact dates of when the work will be occurring, I will reach back out to provide that info.”
