Abstract : This study is submitted in response to the Senate Appropriations Committee Report on the FY 1984 Appropriations Act for the Department of Transportation, which directed the Secretary to analyze the feasibility of a downtown Washington, D.C. heliport. The study examines the feasibility of helicopter operations from the downtown area; costs, safety, security and noise considerations; estimated usage by the public, and impact on passenger traffic at National, Dulles and Baltimore-Washington International airports. Thirty-seven sites were considered as possible heliport locations. After preliminary review, the following three sites were selected for in-depth analysis: The Portal Site, a surface level site at 12th Street and Maine Avenue, S.W.; Union Station, an elevated site on the garage at Union Station; and The Coal Yards Site, a surface level site at the railroad tracks, 1st, M and N Streets, N.E.
