Attention all Red Line riders, Metro is shutting down two stops for 45 days starting Saturday,

Brookland and Rhode Island Ave stations will be closed closed from Saturday, July 21, 2018, through Labor Day for a major capital improvement project, Metro announced. 

On the weekend of July 28-29 the work zone will be extended to Silver Spring Station, closing Takoma Station and the Red Line platform at Fort Totten.

Metro wll offer free shuttle buses to replace Red Line train service between NoMa-Gallaudet U and Fort Totten stations during the 45-day project. Additional buses will be added for Takoma and Silver Spring on the weekend of July 28-29. 

 Free express shuttle buses will also operate between Brookland and Rhode Island Ave and the areas of Metro Center, Gallery Place and Union Station,  Metro says.

Most Red Line customers can avoid the work zone by using the Green Line between Fort Totten and Gallery Place stations, Metro says.  Metro will also run some Yellow Line trains to and from Greenbelt during rush hours to provide additional capacity.
