At tomorrow’s Council meeting, Charlie Scott, Metro’s Senior Government Relations Officer will be making a presentation about Metro’s upcoming platform improvement project in the Summer this year.

Currently, the concrete platforms have been exposed to weather and de-icing agents for decades. Platforms built 35-40 years ago are now deteriorating and in need of repair to maintain safety and accessibility. Additionally, Metro plans to improve customer experiences on the platform.

Due to the repair work during May 29 — September 6 at the Greenbelt, College Park-U of Md, Prince George’s Plaza, and the West Hyattsville, no Green and Yellow line rail service north of Fort Totten will operate.  During this period, Yellow line trains will operate between Huntington & Mt Vernon Sq, and Green line trains will operate between Branch Ave & Fort Totten stations.
