Prepare for the Orange and Silver Line Shutdown

Last summer, as part of the Platform Improvement Project Phase I, WMATA temporarily closed six Blue and Yellow line stations in Alexandria and Springfield to perform major upgrades and create a safer and better passenger experience. This year the focus will be on the Orange Line stations in the Merrifield and Oakton areas, and the Silver Line stations. Metro recently announced that all stations on the Silver Line will be closed from Saturday May 23 through Labor Day, as they take advantage of historically low ridership and traffic-free highways to connect Metrorail to the “phase II” stations constructed by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA). Take some time ahead of the closures to learn about your options and how to prepare for the road ahead.
