Construction crews build replica station platform to prepare for this summer's platform reconstruction work
Published: Thursday, May 2, 2019
Leading up to this summer’s Platform Improvement Project, Metro’s contractor is now full steam ahead preparing the work sites and training their teams. Recently, the project team constructed a station platform “mock up” to help train and educate the workers who will be completely reconstructing several station platforms this summer.
This structure is comprised of six different sections designed to replicate the unique platforms at each of the Blue and Yellow line stations that will be closed this summer (Franconia-Springfield, Van Dorn St, Huntington, Eisenhower Ave, King St-Old Town & Braddock Rd). Pictured here is the Eisenhower Ave section of the station platform mock-up.
