The development manager at the Waterfront Station project, Gordon Fraley, sent the following email today regarding the reopening of 4th Street through the Waterfront Station site: "On or about October 9, 2008, the parking area between the Waterfront/SEU Metro Station escalator and the Bank of America located at Waterfront Station will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians to make way for the demolition and construction of 4th Street, SW. The Metro station escalators and elevators will not be affected by the change. Parking for Safeway will continue to be available in the lot adjacent to the Safeway store along M Street." The map pictured above shows the two areas that will be closed for demolition. You can read my prior posts about Waterfront Station here, here, here, and here.
