RP: Bring Back the Oklahoma Ave Metro
Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space looks at the planned (but never built) Oklahoma Avenue Station station that would have been on Oklahoma avenue immediately south of the meeting of 25th Place and E street. The station would have been an above ground stop on the blue line, but was killed due to neighborhood opposition. Richard writes about how an infill station at that location could do wonders for the H Street/Benning Road Corridor. He also includes an excerpt from a 2003 email that highlights how long some of the current projects have really been in the pipeline. Interesting stuff.
