DISTRICT PLEDGING MONEY TO ALTER SUBWAY FOR NEW ARENA
Published June 6, 1995
The DC government has pledged $15M in federal and local money to construct a wider entrance to the subway station near the proposed site of the new downtown sports arena, according to the WASHINGTON POST. While DC is paying for changes to the entrance, transit officials estimate the additional riders to the arena could raise Metro revenue as much as $6M a year (Stephen Fehr, WASHINGTON POST, 6/6).
