Metro Platform Improvement Project will rebuild 4 Virginia stations next summer 2020
Metro’s Platform Improvement Project is moving to the western side of the Orange Line next summer with plans to rebuild the deteriorating platforms at Vienna, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church, and East Falls Church stations and advance major infrastructure work along the 7-mile rail segment.
While full service information will be announced in March, Metro is advising customers today that three stations will be closed between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2020:
East Falls Church
West Falls Church Station will remain open during the project, because it is equipped with two platforms that can be reconstructed one at a time.
Metro will again partner with local jurisdictions and transportation agencies to develop alternative travel options, including free shuttle buses and other mitigation plans. Specific travel alternatives and rail service details will be announced in early March along with extensive public outreach efforts to maximize awareness of the project and its impacts.
