Silver Spring Pedestrian Detours

Advisory Effective: 10/28/19 - 10/31/21

Beginning Monday, October 28, 2019, for approximately two years.

Due to closures for the MDOT MTA Purple Line construction, pedestrian detours will occur around the Silver Spring Metrorail Station and Paul S. Sarbanes Transit Center for the duration of the project. 

The Metropolitan Branch Trail will temporarily close at Ripley Street. For your safety, stay clear of the construction area and follow all posted signs.
