    Metro Repairs to Shut Down 6 Stations Next Summer

    Metro will close six stations for months next summer to make needed repairs to the platforms. News4's Adam Tuss reports. (Published Monday, May 7, 2018)

    Metro plans to relocate Kiss & Ride lots at four stations this summer to accommodate shuttles during a summer-long shutdown along the Blue and Yellow lines.

    The lots at Huntington, Van Dorn Street, Braddock Road and Eisenhower Avenue stations will be moved in April, Metro said in a press release.

    Metro is launching a summer Improvement Project to make badly needed repairs at on platforms. The following stations will close between May 25 and Labor Day 2019: Braddock Road, King Street, Eisenhower Avenue, Huntington, Van Dorn Street and Franconia-Springfield.

    Blue and Yellow Line commuters can use shuttle buses to travel through the area.

    To accommodate those shuttle buses, Metro is closing its Kiss & Ride lots and opening temporary drop-off zones.

    On Sunday, April 14, Kiss & Ride lots will close at Huntington Station's north and south sides and Van Dorn Station.
