Five Metro stations along the Orange Line in Northern Virginia reopened Tuesday after a monthslong closure to improve platforms.
The New Carrollton, Landover and Cheverly stations in Maryland plus Deanwood and Minnesota Avenue in Northeast D.C. are serving riders again.
Metro reconstructed platform edges to make them safer and longer-lasting.
Other improvements include brighter lights, new LED signs that display train wait times and slip-resistant tiles.

The stations were closed from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2022 for Metro's Platform Improvement Project. Metro has been rebuilding platforms at outdoor stations that have deteriorated due to exposure to weather elements, the transit agency said.
