This fall, the City of Alexandria and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) will begin construction on the King Street-Old Town Metrorail Station Access Improvement Project. While the Project will bring many benefits to transit users, there will be significant construction impacts through mid-2020.
Alexandria Transit Vision Plan
The City of Alexandria, DASH and other regional transit partners are teaming up to develop a new vision for the Alexandria Transit network. The Alexandria Transit Vision (ATV) Plan will redraw the city’s bus network to better serve current/future transit demand, and to better reflect community priorities for transit service. The ATV Plan will involve three rounds of public outreach, withthe first round beginning in September/October 2018. The first round of outreach is especially critical, as it will help the project team define community transit priorities and ATV Plan objectives.
Metrorail Platform Reconstruction Project
Beginning next year, Metro is planning to demolish and rebuild the station platforms at Braddock Road, King Street and Eisenhower Avenue stations, resulting in a shutdown of rail service south of Reagan National Airport during the summer of 2019
