At the meeting they were careful to call this an "interim connection" to Union Station because 1) they don't know what route the streetcar will take to get to Union Station (Mass Ave is still an option) and 2) the aforementioned reconstruction of the Hopscotch Bridge.

Plus, the turnaround is only going to have one set of tracks, so even if they do keep running down H Street they're going to have to rebuild that section anyway to have separate eastbound and westbound tracks on both sides of the road.

There is going to be a short bit with two tracks so that disabled streetcars don't block the line and so streetcars can pass in case of delays just west of 3rd Street on the portion of the bridge that sits on compacted fill.
