Platform Improvement Project

Braddock Rd platform

Platform Reconstruction Begins May 25

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 September 8, 2019.

- Braddock Rd
- King St-Old Town
- Eisenhower Ave
- Huntington
- Van Dorn St
Franconia-Springfield

In addition to local bus services, Metro will provide an extensive network of free shuttles to accommodate customers at all six of the closed stations. Visit the Alternative Travel Options page to learn more.

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.
