Metro to relocate Eisenhower Ave Kiss & Ride lots, bus stops ahead of summer Platform Improvement Project

Advisory Effective: 4/2/19 - 5/27/19

In preparation for this summer’s Platform Improvement Project at six stations on the Blue and Yellow lines, Metro’s contractor, Kiewit, will soon begin constructing temporary bus loops at Huntington, Van Dorn Street, Braddock Road and Eisenhower Avenue stations. The temporary bus loops will accommodate free customer shuttles during construction and will be located in the stations’ Kiss & Ride lots. As a result, the Kiss & Ride lots at these stations will be closed and existing bus stops will be temporarily relocated. The current lots and bus stops will be restored at the conclusion of the project – in most cases, later this year.

In addition, Metro is advising customers that the contractor will conduct pre-construction activities over the weekend of May 4-5, requiring the closure of all six stations south of Reagan National Airport. Additional weekend outages may be necessary before the start of around-the-clock construction on Saturday, May 25.
