Construction Updates: New Carrollton Metrorail Station Projects

Advisory Effective: 7/1/19 - 12/31/23

Metro and its developer are transforming the New Carrollton Metrorail Station into a first-class, multi-modal and mixed-use development, with entertainment, residential, retail and commercial office space. The plan includes an urbanized town center and walkable community, connected by one of the region’s largest transit hubs with access to Metro, Amtrak, MARC, Greyhound and the future MDOT MTA Purple Line.  

New Carrollton Joint Development

  • New Carrollton Joint Development construction is currently underway including: 
    • June 2022: Groundbreaking of The Margaux, a new housing development that will offer modern, transit-oriented housing at below-market rates.
    • August 2022: The county parking garage was demolished.
      • The area will be replaced with a new 1,900-space parking garage and bus loop slated to open in Fall 2024.
      • The new parking garage and bus loop will replace existing surface parking spaces while transforming land at the station into transit-oriented development.
      • Loud noises from equipment, concrete and steel are expected within 200 feet of the structure.

    • December 2022: Metro’s new office building opened.

  • The Kiss & Ride Lot under the parking garage will close on February 17, 2022, for approximately two years.
    • Use the surface Kiss & Ride lot located across from the station entrance for pick-up and drop-off.
    • Additional accessible parking spaces are available inside the Park & Ride garage.
During construction, temporary pedestrian and traffic detours may be in place. For your safety please follow all construction notices and signs.

MDOT MTA Purple Line construction – Park & Ride Lot 4 Impacts

  • As of fall 2019, 75 percent of the New Carrollton Park & Ride Lot 4 has been temporarily closed. 
  • Construction work related to the MDOT MTA Purple Line will occur sporadically and customers will be notified of any impacts. 
  • Customers may still enter/exit the Park & Ride Lot 4 with no disruption from construction activity. 

Future MDOT MTA Purple Line construction phases on the west side of the station will include additional impacts to Park & Ride Lot 4, the bus loop, the Kiss & Ride Lot, and other pedestrian detours along Ellin Road. Look for posted signs prior to the start of the next phase.
