The stations will remain open until May 23; however, Metro parking will be reduced at West Falls Church and Vienna stations, and all Metro parking will be closed at East Falls Church Station.

Working with the local jurisdictions, Metro has identified alternative parking options and local buses that connect customers to the stations. Here are the details for each station:
