Washington DC - Platform Reconstruction Underway

Thursday, May 30, 2019

The six Blue and Yellow line stations south of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport are closed for full platform reconstruction and major station improvements. To expedite construction and minimize customer inconvenience, the following stations are closed through Sunday, September 8, 2019.

Braddock Rd
King St-Old Town
Eisenhower Ave
Van Dorn St

In addition to local bus services, Metro has an extensive network of free shuttles to accommodate customers at all six of the closed stations. Visit the Alternative Travel Options page to learn more.

The station closures are part of Metro's three-year Platform Improvement Project that will completely reconstruct the outdoor platforms at 20 Metrorail stations, making platforms safer and more accessible for customers with disabilities, while also addressing safety concerns and longstanding structural issues.
