Public Input Sought on New Entrance to the Medical Center Metro Station

Tentatively scheduled for January 9, the Planning Board will hold a public hearing on the proposed construction of a new entrance to the Medical Center Metro Station at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The hearing will be at the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission Headquarters, 8787 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring.

The new Metro Station entrance - which is fully funded by the Federal Government - will provide Metrorail access using three elevators on the east side of MD 355. Included in the project are a pedestrian and bike underpass, stairs, escalators and elevators.

Check the Planning Board’s website on the Monday prior to the hearing date to confirm the date and time of the meeting. More information about the project is available on the County’s website.
