Metro plans to extend the Yellow Line, from Mount Vernon Square/7th Street Convention Center to Fort Totten. The extension will overlap some Green Line stations: Shaw-Memorial University; U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo; Columbia Heights and Georgia Avenue-Petworth. Riders, currently, reach Fort Totten via Red and Green Lines.
The extension will commence in January for 18 months as part of a pilot program. Of course, DC will cover the costs, $5.75 million.
