WUS Plan Needs More Work

A redevelopment plan for Washington Union Station will go back to the drawing board because some believe it is too focused on automobile traffic.

At issue is a six-story parking garage that District of Columbia officials are opposing.

The revisions will come in the wake of the Federal Railroad Administration halting its review of the $10 billion project.

The project includes adding concourses and tracks, increased retail businesses, a bus facility, and creating pickup and drop-off areas in front of a new train hall and at other entrances.

The project is expected to be completed by 2040.
