Platform Improvement Project
Platform Reconstruction Begins This Summer
Starting Saturday, May 25, the six Blue and Yellow line stations south of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport will be closed for full platform reconstruction and major station improvements. To expedite construction and minimize customer inconvenience, the following stations will remain closed through Labor Day, Monday, September 2.
- Braddock Road
- King Street
- Eisenhower Ave
- Van Dorn Street
The station closures are part of Metro's three-year Platform Improvement Project that will completely reconstruct the outdoor platforms at 20 Metrorail stations, making platforms safer and more accessible for customers with disabilities, while also addressing safety concerns and longstanding structural issues.
