BP Station at Georgia and Park Road Replacing Underground Tanks

If you have passed the BP gas station on the corner of Georgia Avenue and Park Road recently, you’ll have noticed that bays are fenced off and there has been some excavation at the site. In reviewing permit applications, I confirmed that the gas station is replacing its underground storage tanks.

While many corner properties on Georgia Avenue have been used as gas stations over the years, this corner is the oldest. The first gas station on this site was a Lord Baltimore Filling Station which opened in 1927. The drawing below shows what the station looked like at that time.
