The City of Alexandria announced that construction activity and modifications to Metrorail Blue and Yellow Line service will happen between Feb. 13 and May 23.
Work scheduled during this period will result in significant station infrastructure improvements as part of WMATA’s Platform Improvement Project; upgrades to signal and power systems along the Blue Line; and installation of the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station pedestrian bridge.
Metro will temporarily suspend service along the Blue Line to facilitate work associated with the Platform Improvement Project. The Arlington Cemetery station will be closed for platform reconstruction and the installation of more energy-efficient LED lighting, slip-resistant tiles and new digital signage to improve customer communication. The Addison Rd. station on the Blue Line in Maryland will also be closed for similar improvements.
