March 14, 2012
On March 14, 2012 the MTA held a Neighborhood Work Group meeting for the Lyttonsville Station and the surrounding area. At this meeting the MTA presented new plans for a yard and shop that would be located farther from residential properties. The new, more compact layout would place nearly the entire facility west of Lyttonsville Place. A two-story parking structure would cover the rail storage tracks. The portion of Brookville Road west of Lyttonsville Place would need to be realigned to maintain access to the Montgomery County Bus Facility; and the Lyttonsville Place bridge would be realigned. Community members broke into applause several times as Mike Madden, the MTA's Purple Line Project Manager, presented the new plans.
The new plans were developed in response to meetings last fall when local residents expressed concern about the proposed yard and shop location in Lyttonsville. The MTA agreed to reexamine the plans for the yard and shop in an effort to address the community's concerns. After working with elected officials and county staff to identify possible locations, the MTA developed a number of options before settling on the one that would address both the community concerns and also meet MTA's operational requirements. The MTA was pleased to have been able to find a solution that was so warmly received.
Below you will find the presentation, which was presented on two screens side-by-side, and mapping that was presented at the meeting.
