The District is seeking artists to help design a memorial to those killed in the train collision nearly three years ago near the Fort Totten station on Metro's Red Line.
There is a D.C. park on the corner of South Dakota and New Hampshire Avenues in Northeast. This will also be the site for a new memorial to honor the nine people who died in the 2009 Metrorail Red Line accident, as well as those who were hurt and the first responders who rushed to danger on that day.
The D.C. Commission on the Arts has put out a request for proposal from architects who wish to design a space that will allow for meditation, remembrance, reflection, hope and renewal and fabricate artistic elements for that permanent memorial.
The winning design will receive $200,000.
Virginia's attorney general Ken Cuccinelli will face former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe in November to become Virginia's 72nd governor.
