New routing proposed for Route 7Y in downtown DC
Metro is proposing to reroute the 7Y within the District of Columbia to serve the Foggy Bottom area as well as Farragut Square, McPherson Square, and Franklin Square. This routing would provide a new, direct bus connection between Virginia and Washington’s downtown employment center as well as provide an additional travel option for current Blue Line riders between the Pentagon and downtown Washington, DC. Under this proposal, the 7Y would follow its current route between Southern Towers and the US State Department (via the Pentagon) then to Franklin Square via 18th/19th Streets, and I/K Streets.
The map below illustrates the changes proposed. Please review and let us know what you think. We will also be presenting these options at our upcoming public hearings.
