Salvage Yard May Snag Deal for New Soccer Stadium

Rendering of the proposed D.C. United stadium, unveiled at Thursday's press conference.

There could be a snag in the plan to build a new soccer stadium in southwest Washington.

Radio station WAMU-FM reports that officials apparently never reached out to discuss relocating a salvage yard that currently sits in the middle of the planned field. The stadium deal which would give a new home to D.C. United hinges on a series of land swaps, but for the deal to work, officials need the land that Super Salvage sits on.

Super Salvage hasn't ruled out working with the city or moving, but there aren't very many places left in the city to relocate. The employee-owned company has been in business for decades and is valued at $7.5 million.

Officials told the radio station that they plan on contacting Super Salvage soon.
