Memorial park for 2009 Metro crash victims delayed

Two years after D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray pledged to build a $1.8 million park memorializing the victims of the 2009 Metro Red Line crash, the city does not have a design and is still seeking the National Park Service’s approval to create the park on the south side of the New Hampshire Avenue bridge, the Washington Examiner reported.

Gray pledged in 2011 to build a park near the site of the crash in which nine people died and dozens more were injured outside the Fort Totten Metro station.
