Consultants from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority will share an update on a study of the Rockville Metro station with the Mayor and Council at their Monday, Dec. 5 meeting.
The WMATA team will share the draft results of a concept analysis and discuss four concept design options with the Mayor and Council.
This is an interim review of the analysis by the Mayor and Council in order to provide direction before holding two public meetings to share results of the concept analysis and receive feedback from the community.
The station, which opened in 1984, is a critical part of the city’s transportation network, but is showing its age.
The study’s goals are to develop recommendations for improvements to the station’s aging infrastructure and connections with Rockville’s downtown and neighborhoods to the east, and potential development opportunities at the site and strategies to increase bus and train ridership.
