Platform Improvement Project
Platform Reconstruction Starts Saturday, May 23
Beginning Saturday, May 23, all nine Orange and Silver line stations west of Ballston-MU will be closed and no Silver Line trains will operate in the Metrorail system. Silver Line stations between Ballston-MU and Largo Town Center will be served by Orange and/or Blue Line trains.
During the shutdown, Metro will combine this summer’s platform reconstruction work at Vienna, Dunn Loring, East Falls Church and West Falls Church with a separate project on the Silver Line to connect Metrorail to the new "phase II" stations, which are being constructed by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA).
Free express and local shuttle service will be available during the shutdown.
