Crystal City Metro will soon be one step closer to getting a second entrance. The Arlington County Board is set to approve an interim agreement on Saturday with real-estate company JBG Smith. If approved, it will provide funding for the developer to come up with technical construction plans and a cost estimate of the project.

Arlington has long planned to construct a second entrance for Crystal City Metro station on Crystal Drive. The entrance was envisioned as part of the 2010 Crystal City Sector Plan, and a 2014 study conducted by Arlington and Metro found three possible locations. The chosen site is at Crystal Drive and 18th Street which is down the hill from the existing entrance and near where the expanded Crystal City VRE station will be built.
