Poll: Are You Impacted by Metro’s Expanded Summer Work?

Metro is gearing up for work this summer that will close all of the Orange and Silver line stations west of Ballston.

Last week, Metro announced it is expanding its work from just platform reconstruction at several Orange Line stations to include connection of the upcoming Silver Line Phase II stations, which run from Reston to Ashburn.

Low Metro ridership and severely reduced highway traffic due to Virginia’s stay-at-home order prompted the additional work, Metro officials said.

Starting Saturday, May 23, nine stations will be closed through the fall. Free express and local shuttle buses, along with Fairfax Connector routes, will help connect riders traveling around Northern Virginia.

Let Tysons Reporter know if the expanded summer work will impact you.
