Orange Line Stations Closed This Weekend for Summer Shutdown Preparation

To get ready for summer platform work, WMATA is closing several Orange Line stations this weekend, affecting riders in Vienna, Falls Church and Merrifield.

Riders can expect trains every 16 minutes between the West Falls Church and New Carrollton stations with additional trains between Ballston and New Carrollton from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 8), according to WMATA’s website.

Free shuttle buses will replace trains at the Vienna, Dunn Loring and East Falls Church stations.

The bus routes will be:

  • between East Falls Church and Ballston
  • between Vienna, Dunn Loring and West Falls Church
  • express bus between Vienna and West Falls Church

Riders can expect trains to single track through the East Falls Church station. The West Falls Church station will stay open.

“Customers on Ballston-bound Orange Line trains who are continuing on to West Falls Church should exit the train at Virginia Square for a same platform transfer,” according to the website.
