Crystal City Metrorail Station Proposed Second Entrance
Arlington County, in coordination with Metro, is proposing a second entrance to the Crystal City Metrorail Station. The station is one of the more highly used stations in Arlington County, and the proposed second entrance would provide additional capacity to accommodate more riders as the region continues to grow.
The proposed second entrance would be located at the east end of the station – near 18th Street S & Crystal Drive – and would provide easier access from Crystal Drive, the VRE station and the Metroway transit station. In addition, the proposed second entrance plan includes elevator upgrades to improve compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provide more conveniently located elevator access. The proposed second entrance would also serve as an additional emergency exit.
