Sometimes it’s the little things…
This week, Ashburn resident Joe Goodrich was walking his dog over by the new Ashburn metro station and he snapped a few pictures, including this one showing the new Ashburn Station sign. (Thanks, Joe!)
Last we heard, the Silver Line coming on-line is still a year away, give or take. But there’s something about seeing the familiar metro signage with “Ashburn Station” on it that feels like progress.
Meanwhile, don’t even get us started on the whole name thing. While the restaurant and apartment development next door is called Loudoun Station (where The Zone, Famous Toastery and Starplex theater are), the actual metro stop is named Ashburn Station. Meanwhile, the metro stop over by 606/Old Ox Road is called Loudoun Gateway Station.
No, that’s not going to be confusing at all.
