WMATA forgets to plan ahed (sic)

A Washington Post article outlines errors made with the renovation of the Friendship Heights WMATA depot causing the possible elimination or relocation of the facility.

According to the article, planners failed to account for increased height requirements for buses using new, alternative energies such as natural gas, causing the depot to be a few to several inches too short to be used by at least 1/3 of the current fleet.

A resolution has not been studied.
