ANC APPROVES COMMENTS REGARDING WMATA’S PROPOSED REHABILITATION OF THE CHEVY CHASE BUS LOOP FACILITY
Although the ANC applauded WMATA's plan to rehab the bus loop facility located on Connecticut Ave. (and Oliver St.) it raised some items that it felt needed to be addressed during this planned work. The ANC approved comments urged WMATA to:

  • Eliminate the windscreen, which creates a dark and potentially dangerous place
  • Use permeable pavers or pavement when replacing the existing asphalt pavement and concrete sidewalks
  • Use 2700 Kelvin LEDs to replace streetlights for the new exterior lighting at the facility, and
  • Design sufficient flexibility so that the facility can be adapted to serve a more community-oriented use in addition to serving as a relatively infrequent rest stop for WMATA drivers.
