Metro will close five stations on the Orange Line for an entire month so crews can repair the tracks.
The closure affects the far eastern stretch of the Orange Line: New Carrollton, Landover, Cheverly, Deanwood, and Minnesota Ave.
The work is scheduled for May 16 through June 15. Buses will replace trains between New Carrollton and Stadium-Armory stations.
Break. Five #WMATA stations to close in Maryland and D.C. for a month starting May 16, a major change from planned #SafeTrack work. @wusa9— Pete Muntean (@petemuntean) April 28, 2017
It’s part of the year-long SafeTrack program. Original plans called for single tracking between the stations.
