In June, WMATA said it might be possible to reopen the stairway entrance to the Van Ness Metro station at times during the three-year escalator replacement project. Next week, WMATA will update the community on the status of the repairs at the next meeting of ANC 3F.
The Advisory Neighborhood Commission for Forest Hills, Wakefield, North Cleveland Park and Van Ness will meet at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 15th, at Forest Hills of DC (4901 Connecticut). For those of us following along at home, the ANC expects to livestream the meeting and archive it playback at livestream.anc3f.us.
