Greenbelt and College Park Metro to Close During Summer

Metro stations on Green Line in MD & Orange in VA that just saw months-long summer shutdowns in the past few years will be shut down again this summer. No service from Greenbelt to Fort Totten July 22-Sept 4,

Green Line shutdown is for fiber-optic cable installation Metro says it was unable to do when Greenbelt, College Park, West Hyattsville, & what was then Prince George’s Plaza all closed 3+ months in summer 2021 – that was only a year and a half ago now they’ll close again!

    Genuine question. Why couldn’t they install the fiber optic cable in 2021?

    Given the news, I might plan to drive to Grosvenor for ventures to DC this summer. It’ll depend on the shuttle service (and if there’s any red line shenanigans).

    It’s great that Metro has more 7000 series trains back. And hopefully more will be allowed to run at once, followed by automating trains (to enhance safety) and the introduction of the 8000 series trains. Certainly some things to look forward to, but I’ll keep expectations low and assume those things will take about twice as long as currently projected.
