Northern Bus Garage, Washington, D.C.

Temporary site fence along 14th Street NW, between Buchanan Street NW and Iowa Avenue NW.

As part of the Northern Bus Garage Reconstruction Project, Metro's Art in Transit program is working to mitigate the impact of construction at the site on the surrounding community by creating and installing temporary art banners on the perimeter fence.

Northern Bus Garage
Inspired by the long history of the Northern Bus Garage, the banners were designed by the Art in Transit program in collaboration with the community. They present whimsical, colorful scenes of neighborhood landmarks and tell the story of the evolution of public transportation in the District.

The banners currently installed along 14th Street are only a small sample of the different designs developed for this project. Additional banners will be installed on the perimeter of the worksite during the Fall of 2022.

The banners are printed on durable, UV and water-resistant mesh PVC, are designed to withstand outdoor weather condition. They also provide a colorful screen to the site during construction that can be enjoyed by people travelling along 14th Street.
