Platform Improvement Project
Six BL/YL stations reopen on time - September 9
The six Blue and Yellow line stations south of Reagan National Airport, which were closed this summer for platform reconstruction and major station improvements, reopened to the public as scheduled on September 9. Normal service resumed at the following stations:
- Braddock Rd
- King St-Old Town
- Eisenhower Ave
- Van Dorn St
The summer 2019 station closures were part of Metro's three-year Platform Improvement Project to repair and reconstruct platforms at 20 outdoor Metrorail stations. The platform work, which also includes customer experience improvements, will enhance safety, accessibility, communication and convenience.
