Accessibility of Platforms at Braddock Rd & Rhode Island Ave Stations

Braddock Road boarding

Due to track settling and station design, Rhode Island Avenue and Braddock Road stations now have some platform edge-to-train gaps which are no longer ADA-compliant.

Metro is working on designs and future funding for permanent repair of these platforms.

Optimal boarding and alighting areas have been identified and marked on the platforms for customers using mobility devices at these stations until permanent repairs can be made.
