    Back in August, we learned what was under consideration for the H Street trolley's temporary connection to Union Station (after the initial idea, going through an underpass, fell through). Now, the District Department of Transportation has issued some sketches of their own, and they're a little different: The alternatives have narrowed to two, with stopping at F Street and going to the top of the H Street Bridge still in contention, while going up to the New York Avenue Metro stop is off the table. Above is what's being contemplated for the Eastern end.

    There's an update meeting next week at 7:00 p.m. at the Atlas Theater. Diagrams after the jump.
