ROUTE 606 – INTERNATIONAL CITY CONCEPT
METRO Observations
• Time is of the essence
• Rt 606 is the big challenge. No legislative applications.
– Rt 772 has Moorefield Station and Loudoun Station ZMAPs
• Consensus is that mixed use development is the highest and best use – the
devil is in the details
– Rt 772 already approved for mixed use, including residential
– Airport noise and residential at Rt 606 remains contentious
• Little support for re-do of noise contours
• Can noise be mitigated and help argument for residential?
• MWAA heavy lobbying in the building to respect airport; no residential
• Metro station naming moving along
– Top vote getters:
• Rt 606: Broad Run (Loudoun East, Loudoun Gateway)
• Rt 772: Ashburn
– Board will forward names to WMATA for market testing
