Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG)

Throughout the planning process for the Metrorail station, citizen work groups have provided an important forum for community and stakeholder input. A Metrorail Station Feasibility Work Group was established in 2008 and met through 2010. In 2011, the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station Feasibility Work Group was re-convened as the Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG) to ensure a thorough technical analysis of a potential new Metrorail station.

In September 2015, City Council revised PYMIG's responsibilities and composition to enable PYMIG to function as a forum for the public outreach process through station opening and allow the group to consider the variety of issues that will arise as the project moves into design and construction.

Staff from the Department of Transportation and Environmental Services and the Department of Project Implementation serve as primary liaisons to PYMIG with support from other departments and consultants when needed. The staff of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) also assist. The Work Group meets regularly to discuss issues related to the Metrorail station. The public is invited to attend all meetings.  For additional information, contact Lee Farmer at or call 703.746.4146.
